GEORGES TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
Police are looking for answers in the burglary of an elderly woman’s Fayette County home.
Two people used a window to break into the home on Walnut Hill Road in Georges Township Thursday night.
An 89-year-old woman inside awoke to one of the burglars pointing a gun at her, and demanding money and jewelry, police said.
“They woke her up while she was sleeping and asked where her cash and jewelry was at,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper James Garlick said. “She was frightened."
Before leaving the home with the woman’s purse, the burglars cut the phone lines and removed the woman’s life alert necklace.
The victim was eventually able to get into her wheelchair and was later found by a home health care worker.
