A 95-year-old woman was beaten in her home during a robbery organized by her home health assistant, police said.
On March 7, police in Hagerstown, Maryland, responded to a home and found a 95-year-old woman with injuries to her head, neck and face.
The victim said a man came into her home and tried to kill her, according to Hagerstown police. Authorities took the victim to the hospital, and she was later released.
