A Texas teen and her grandfather say they were attacked by a monkey roaming the streets of Houston.

The 16-year-old was a passenger in the front seat of her grandfather's truck when it happened.

The teen says they stopped and she rolled down the window to take a picture of the monkey -- and that's when they said it leapt right onto the truck and attacked her.

"It caught me and I just hollered and I hit it right in the head, right in the face, and knocked it out the window," Michael Schliesing.

The monkey did not bite the teen, but she's on antibiotics for the scratches.

The city's humane department is now trying to find the animal.
