Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A 92-year-old woman was allegedly beaten and sexually assaulted in her own home in Stanford.

Neighbor Mabel Releford explained the woman had family over Friday night and moments after they left there was a knock at the door.

 "To break in on her like that, to rape her and rob her, and beat her up for $20, that is terrible," Releford said.

Police said even though she was battered and bruised the 92-year-old victim managed to call 911, but she is going to have a long road to recovery.

Police said they arrested a man Saturday on burglary charges who is a person of interest in the case, but have not yet charged him.
