On October 30th around 10:30 a.m., a male suspect forced his way into the elderly female’s home on Ardincaple Drive.

The suspect then began physically assaulting the woman.

Officials say the woman was able to defend herself against the attacker. At some point during the incident, she was able to call out to a relative who was in a different room of the home.

The woman, however, did not require medical attention.

The composite sketch, courtesy of SLED may resemble the suspect. They were described as being a thin 20-25-year-old black male, 5’11 and was last seen wearing a blue hoodie.
