Pensioner battered by raiders

A 95-year-old woman has been left with a black eye, cut head and fractured pelvis after confronting burglars inside her home in Wickford, Essex.

'Life-changing' assault on pensioner attacked at home

She was an independent woman doing all her own housework despite being aged in her 90s and now because of this incident she will now need to have extra help. This incident has been truly life-changing.

It is upsetting to see the face of a lovely lady battered and bruised by these men who clearly had no regard for her when they broke into her home and assaulted her without a second thought.

The men should be ashamed of themselves as should those who know them or live with them.

– Detective Constable Tony Thomas, Essex Police
