Elderly Woman Sexually Assaulted

Norwalk (myFOXla.com) - A partially blind woman in her 80s was sexually assaulted on Friday in her Norwalk condominium by a man who broke a window to gain entry.

The woman was assaulted about 5 a.m. in her condo in the 13900 block of Bayside Drive, near Rosecrans Avenue, said Lt. Jenny Ha of the sheriff's Norwalk Station.

He said a "scent dog" helped search for the rapist.

About 4:30 p.m., sheriff's deputies served a search warrant at another condo in the complex, said Lt. John Gannon of the Norwalk station. Deputies were led to the other condo by "evidence found outside the condo" where the sexual assault occurred.

No one was at home when the warrant was served, Gannon said.

Because no one was there, deputies broke in to search the apartment.

The man who committed the assault wore dark clothing and was described as a white man about 20-25 years old with a thin build, Ha said.

The suspect reportedly broke a window to enter the street level of the woman's condo. The woman, who was asleep upstairs, heard a noise and went downstairs to investigate.

The woman was taken to a hospital for examination.
