According to a media release, the 68-year-old victim "heard banging at her front door". Thinking it was someone in distress, she opened the door with the intent to help the person. A black male suspect forced himself inside the residence and beat the woman. She was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries sustained during the attack.
