Senior hurt in invasion B&E

A 74-year-old woman is recovering from injuries she suffered when a man broke into her ground-floor suite in Prince George.

RCMP say the woman was asleep in bed when the break-in occurred early Thursday.

They say the man took several items and some cash.

The woman was allegedly assaulted before the attacker fled.

Cpl. Craig Douglass says officers responded immediately and a 37-year-old suspect was picked up a short distance away.

Philip Wood faces charges ranging from assault causing bodily harm to breaking and entering.

Douglass says the attack on the senior is an "especially despicable crime."

"To forcibly invade the privacy of someone's home is absolutely horrible. To assault the 74-year-old resident is a whole other level of disgusting," he says.
