FYI: We did talk to Jan, the woman who was assaulted in her home last
Sunday. It looks like it was premeditated. They had followed her, or found
out she had bought some coins (and deposited them elsewhere) but sounds
like they knew she had bought something and were looking for it. They
questioned her about it, said something like where are the coins?
So although it is still awful, it wasn't someone just robbing a house in
the neighborhood. They were here because they probably saw she had a cane
and a handicapped sticker, had bought something and found out where she
lived. They could have been casing the joint where she bought the coins or
someone at the shop could have let them know.
We still need to be on the look out, but they were looking for her.
She is okay. She got pretty beat up and is frightened, understandably
so....But she put up a hell of a fight.
