Burglars Grab Elderly Woman's Throat

Someone grabbed an 87-year-old Eldred woman by throat while demanding money during a home invasion and burglary between 8:43 and 8:53 p.m. on Tuesday.

State police say two people – possibly young males – forced their way into the woman’s Canfield Hollow home wearing dark clothing, knit caps and face paint. One of them grabbed the woman by the throat and demanded money.

They got away with $60 and a cordless phone.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Kane-based state police.
