— Police in Dunn say someone is targeting the homes of elderly men and women.

Police say a burglar has hit seven homes since mid-July. The suspect breaks in through back windows and doors, and then demands money from the occupants.

One woman was treated at a local hospital after the burglar bruised her arm while snatching her purse.

Investigators said they fear the burglar may get more violent as the spree continues.
