Burglary

   * Irene Turner, 74, 226 South Hills Drive, reported Monday to EPD Ptl. Jason Shaw that someone entered her home during the night or early morning and assaulted her. Turner told the officer she went to bed around 10 p.m. and must have forgotten to lock the door. She said she was awakened by a male subject, saying, "I won't hurt you if you give me money." Turner said she told the subject she didn't have any money, at which point he grabbed her and pulled her off the bed and onto the floor. She said she struggled with him and, thinking he was going to rape her, kicked him between the legs. The intruder then ran out the door. Turner said it took her about 20 minutes to crawl to the living room, where the clock showed it was 4 a.m. She said she tried to use the phone but it didn't work. She was unable to call 911 to report the incident until Monday afternoon. The intruder was described as a thin male, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with facial hair on his chin. Detective Matt Bowers was called to the scene to investigate. Turner received bruises on her left arm and left leg.
