Woman, 82, attacked in home

August 4, 2010

An 82-year-old woman was attacked by an unknown assailant Tuesday night in her east-side Indianapolis home. A relative, worried when he hadn't heard from the woman all day, stopped by her house near East 21st Street and Emerson Avenue about 10 p.m. to check on her. He found her injured at the bottom of a staircase. Evelyn Jackson said she had been there for more than eight hours after an intruder threw her down a flight of stairs. She was taken to the hospital with a broken hip.
