An elderly woman, living between Whitlock and Paul on the Southfield Freeway service drive, was the victim of a home invasion shortly after noon this afternoon. A black male in his early twenties broke into a home, assaulted the resident, and stole the estimated $100 that she had in her purse before fleeing the scene.
The victim reportedly hit her attacker with a vacuum cleaner upon noticing his illegal entry into her home. The assailant then shoved her against a wall and reportedly pistol whipped her with a handgun. She is in good condition at her home.
Anyone with information on the identity of this attacker is asked to call the Detroit Police Department.
