OKLAHOMA CITY — An elderly Oklahoma City woman was taken to the hospital Friday after being beaten in a home invasion for the third time.
The 90-year-old woman was eating breakfast when the last attack occurred.
“The first time they came in through the restroom and just took toiletry stuff,” neighbor Frank Herndon said. The second time they came through the front door. The third time they cut their way into this back door. She`s 90-something years old I believe and she just can`t hear it.”
To the best of his knowledge she is the only one on their street who is being targeted.
“This basically is a quiet neighborhood, has been for years,” Herndon said. “Like I said, she is the only one who is ever been messed with, so it almost leads back to where maybe it is just the same group of people that are doing it.”
Neighbors say intruders think she’s an easy target because of her age and the trees that surround her house.
“If I could have seen where the trees are there I might have had a chance to help her,” says Herndon. “But those trees are coming down. I can promise you that.”
Herndon says she’s a feisty woman; so convincing her to let him do that won’t be easy.
“She can hate me all she wants to,” says Herndon. “The last time I cut some back she wouldn’t speak to me for about two months and that was after the last time it happened to her.”
Police don’t have any suspect information yet but say they will be getting that from her as soon as possible.
“I give her kudos. She fights back,” Herndon said.
