Elderly woman sexually assaulted by stranger in own home

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

North Vancouver RCMP are calling it “extremely rare” and “highly concerning.”

A woman in her 80′s was sexually assaulted by a stranger in her own lower Ridgeway area home early this morning.

“An unknown male entered a single family residence occupied by a lone elderly female. At that point the woman was sexually assaulted. The mid 80-year old victim was taken to hospital for an examination; she is presently being supported by family members and victims services.  It is unclear how the suspect gained access to the residence, or if this was a targeted or random incident.”

Cpl. Richard De Jong says the woman is traumatized.

No suspect description is available.
