A 90-year-old woman was beaten black and blue in her own home in the latest incident of shocking violent crime in the capital.
Iris Warner was beaten by an intruder and wasn’t discovered until a couple of days later by her startled son.
“This was a horrific attack carried out on a very vulnerable elderly woman in her own home, and must have been absolutely terrifying for Iris,” said Detective Inspector Saj Hussain, from Brent CID.
“She has various medical complications on top of the injuries sustained in the assault that are likely to keep her in hospital for a very long time.”
The victim’s memory of events is foggy, but she can remember waking up to a man standing over her before she was beaten in the face with some kind of instrument.
Her room was ransacked.
This is pretty much as bad as it gets. When an elderly woman isn’t safe in her own home, something’s gone badly wrong. Hopefully the animal that did this spends many, many years behind bars.
