The spokeswoman said she believes the woman had been living on Saint Helena island, part of the same British overseas territory, with her husband and children.
The victim is being treated at a nearby hospital, she added.
The attack happened in an alley in the 300 block of Middle St. around 4:40 a.m. on Tuesday.
Officers went to the scene after a 911 caller reported hearing someone screaming for help and crying. The caller also reported hearing several dogs barking loudly.

"The crops had 2 weeks advance and the clear sky in the last days allowed these spring frosts. Main frost in Alsace on the early morning of 20th of april, and then on the 21st too. 5°C to 7 °C under zero on the 20th depending on the places.
Here are words from an article that Philippe sent.
Frost and negative (below-zero) temperatures have caused great damage in the vineyards of Alsace, France.Here's the article in French
"In many places, there are 95 to 100% loss of buds," says Gérard Schaffar, president of the Turckheim cellar in Haut-Rhin.
Strawberries - the fruit called "red gold" - are one of the most important agricultural products of İnegöl, a city in the Bursa Province in Turkey.Sezai Çelik said: "The great majority of the subalterns were damaged and it was not expected to be such a snowfall on April 23."
Farmers worry that after the snowfall may come freezing, which will cause even greater damage. With 190 thousand acres of fruit in the field, we do not want to even think about it, said Celik. Ali Soldildi, a strawberry farmer, said "there is a serious damage to the products because of the untimely falling snow on April 23." Thanks to Argiris Diamantis for this link.
"This must be the greenhouse effect," says Argiris. "Heavy snowfall causes the collapse of the greenhouses."
He was describing the volcanic eruption that occurred at Mount St. Helens 37 years ago in May 1980. During that event, an eruption column rose into the sky, ultimately impacting 11 states in the U.S. But it wasn't just the people who live in the area that were affected by the eruption: the glaciers of Mount St. Helens melted into nearby rivers, causing several mudslides.
Cascades Volcano Observatory indicates that before the 1980 eruption, extensive glaciers had covered Mount St. Helens for several hundred thousand years. About 3,900 years ago, Mount St. Helens began to grow to its pre-eruption elevation and a high cone developed, allowing for substantial glacial formation. There were 11 major glaciers and several unnamed glaciers by May 18, 1980, according to the United States Geological Survey. But after the eruption and resultant landslide, about 70 percent of the glacier mass was removed from the mountainside. It was during the winter of 1980 to 1981, following the catastrophic eruption, that a new glacier, Crater Glacier, first emerged.

On Sunday night and Monday morning, around 13 centimetres of snow fell on the city.
According to Environment Canada, a large ridge of arctic high pressure combined with a weather system from Montana to create the lower-than-usual temperatures.
"It was quite a significant snowfall for this time of year," said meteorologist Terri Lang.
I am so going to kick the groundhog's ass #yqr #wtf #snow
The snow covered many highways in the area, leading Highway Hotline to issue Travel Not Recommended advisories from Swift Current to Regina, and north to Davidson.
The snowstorm was also felt in other parts of the province. An area stretching from Prince Albert to Emma and Christopher Lakes received around 10 centimetres of snow.

Up to 25 centimetres of snow could cover parts of Manitoba, including Winnipeg, according to Environment Canada.
The late April snow isn't all that unusual for the region. Winnipeg saw about 22 centimetres of snow in May 2002 and 29 centimetres in May 2004. The white stuff was also seen falling around the city in May 2013, 2014 and 2015.
According to Gary Gerbrandt, owner of Dymamic Auto Services, the snowfall saw six customers cancel their appointments to have their snow tires removed at his auto shop. Manitoba Public Insurance requires studded snow tires to be removed by April 30.
"If you don't feel comfortable driving, just wait," Gerbrandt told CTV Winnipeg. "That's all, no set time."
Another Winnipeg driver, Lucy Pankiw, wasn't fazed by the snow with her all-season tires and drove out to get groceries despite the slushy roads and poor visibility.

People have been taking to Twitter to share their disbelief as the white stuff falls in April.
Amy Canning posted on Twitter: "It's forecast rain, hail and snow for this week. Only in Ireland would that happen and it almost summer."
The forecast for today was a fair 7C and was set to be windy and partly cloudy but it seems snow has hit Co Antrim.
Arctic weather will strike Ireland bringing in freezing temperatures as well as frost and even some snow overnight.
Monday will be a nice mild day for the most part before the cold moves in overnight and stays around for the next couple of days.

The far north of Scotland is the most affected, with temperatures in some areas of the Highlands possibly falling as low as -6C in the early hours of Tuesday.
While likely to thaw quickly, snow showers accompanied by a strong and gusty wind over the course of Monday could create blizzard-like conditions at higher levels.
Overnight into Tuesday, some areas could be hit by 2cm to 5cm of snow, while wintry showers will remain frequent and heavy in the Highlands throughout the day.
