* 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.
