A 94-year old woman has been attacked as she slept in her own bed.

Emma Winnall, from Pensby Close in Moseley, was assaulted in her own bed overnight between Monday April 30 and Tuesday May 1.

She was left with a fractured skull, a broken arm, a partially severed finger and other multiple injuries.

She is still seriously ill and sedated in hospital having undergone emergency surgery, including having metal plates inserted into her arm.

Police investigating the incident say they are unable to determine a motive for the attack.

This is a truly sickening attack on a defenceless, frail lady as she slept in her own home. Mrs Winnall had nothing of note to steal…it was a senseless assault and I'd urge anyone with suspicions about who may be responsible to get in touch straight away.

– West Midlands Police Detective Chief Inspector Sarb Johal
