7:49 AM: Two women were critically injured in an attack that apparently stemmed from a home invasion robbery in San Francisco’s Sunset District on Thursday night, a police spokesman said today.
Officers responded at about 9:20 p.m. to the 1700 block of 20th Avenue, where a possible aggravated assault was reported.
Investigators believe one of the victims, a 76-year-old woman, was attacked during a home invasion robbery at her home, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.
A 56-year-old woman delivering food to the home interrupted the robbery and was also attacked, Andraychak said. She was able to flee and obtain help.
Both women were taken to a hospital to be treated for their injuries, which are considered life-threatening, according to Andraychak.
The suspect, described only as an Asian male, fled in a light-colored sedan after going through the drawers of the 76-year-old woman’s home. Andraychak did not immediately have information on what might have been taken.
The weapon used in the attacks has also not been determined, he said.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411.
