Elderly Woman Attacked In Enfield, Conn.

Police-Home Invasion

ENFIELD, Conn. (WGGB) — Neighbors in an Enfield area are on high alert following a recent home invasion.

A 92-year-old woman was attacked inside her Windsor Street home earlier this week.

“What kind of animal would do something like that?” asked Dee Tracy, Enfield.

Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza says a young man holding a package rang the victim’s doorbell. When she opened the door, the attacker barged in and knocked the woman down to the ground. He says the thief stole a TV and jewelry.

“The woman’s daughter checked on her a short time later, saw blood on the floor, mom had injuries, cleaned up everything, brought mom to get some medical care,” said Chief Sferrazza.

The chief says home invasions like this are not only unique to this neighborhood, but to Enfield in general.

“We are certainly doing whatever we can do to find who’s responsible for picking on someone as defenseless as an old woman,” said Chief Sferrazza.

Anyone with information can call the Enfield Police Dept. at 860-763-6400.
