Pa. police say woman, 89, robbed inside own home

December 14, 2013

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say two people broke into the home of an 89-year-old woman and robbed her at gunpoint, cutting the phone lines so she couldn't summon help.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/1fufWBR ) that the suspects took the woman's purse and medical alert necklace.

The paper says the Fayette County woman, who uses a wheelchair, awoke shortly before midnight Thursday to demands that she produce money and jewelry.

Police say the suspects entered through a window and then spent some time rifling through her belongings.

After they were gone she couldn't call to summon help, so police weren't notified until a home health care worker arrived.
