Warren Deputies Investigate Attack on Woman, 80

Posted July 8, 2007 11:45 a.m. EDT

— Sheriff's deputies Sunday were looking for a suspect in the rape and robbery of an 80-year-old woman.

Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams said the man attacked the woman at her home on U.S. 401 South after passing her a note through her door and then forcing his way into the house late Saturday afternoon.

The victim had injuries indicating she was raped, but did not sustain other injuries, officials said.

She was unable to give deputies a description of her attacker, but officials said they wanted to talk to a black man of medium build who neighbors saw operating a light-colored sedan, possibly a mid-90s Honda, near the victim's house at the time of the attack.
