95-year old woman assaulted in burglary

A 95-year old woman was assaulted during one of two burglaries investigated this weekend on Tate Street.

The Hopkinsville Police report says a suspect made forced entry into a home in the 1500 block of Tate about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, struck the 95-year old victim on the head and demanded cash. The perpetrator took $123 and left the home.

In a separate incident, force was used to get in a house next door sometime Friday, when a burglar took $1,230 worth of property including two televisions and a Playstation.
