Shortly thereafter, an 88 year-old female suffering from severe head injuries was located in a park across the street. The victim was transported to the hospital and still being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Investigators believe the unknown suspect attacked the victim in the park and then entered her home across the street before fleeing the area.
