Aussie Police Looking For Thug Who Bashed 84-Year-Old Woman In Her Retirement Home
Police in New South Wales are on the hunt for the man who bashed an elderly woman in her retirement home.
Patricia, who is 84 years old, walked into her room at a retirement village on Bobbin Head Road on Sydney's North Shore on Saturday night and was confronted by an unknown man.
The man is accused of bashing Patricia in her bedroom and then leaving her for dead.
NSW Police have released a statement, saying: "As part of their inquiries, strike force detectives conducted an extensive canvass of the local area yesterday, which included speaking with residents within the retirement village.
"Investigators are now seeking further assistance from the community, and will be joined by Patricia's daughter, Caroline, today, to appeal for anyone with relevant information to come forward.
"In particular, strike force detectives would like to speak with a man who was seen in the area at the time of the incident and has yet to be identified.
"He is described as being aged between 30 and 50, about 175-180cm tall, possibly of Asian or Indian Sub-Continental appearance, with a medium build, brown eyes, dark hair, and clean shaven. At the time, he was wearing light coloured pants and a jacket, over a button-up shirt and tie.
"Detectives would also like to speak with anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in the area and ask motorists who travelled through the area to review dash-cam vision."
Patricia was transported to Sydney Adventist Hospital after the assault and has been receiving treatment for serious injuries.
Anyone who has information about the cowardly attack is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or on their website.
Detective Chief Inspector Luke Spurr said the incident has left Patricia, her family and the community in shock.
"Let me reassure you, these types of offences are uncommon and police are doing everything in their power to fully investigate this matter and to locate the offender," he told reporters.
