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.
