Police: Woman assaulted by armed intruders in Elk Grove robbery


SACRAMENTO - A woman was injured in a violent home invasion in Elk Grove Wednesday morning, according to police.

Elk Grove police spokesman Christopher Trim said officers were dispatched to a home on the 8800 block of Springhurst Dr. around 7:18 a.m. following a report of three armed suspects who entered the woman's home and stole personal property.

The woman was hit in the face during the incident, Trim said. She was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Two children, a 10 year old and 1 year old were also inside the home at the time of the invasion. Trim did not say if they were injured.

One of the suspected intruders was described as a black man in his late 20s. He was last seen wearing a gray zip-up sweater.

After firefighters responded and continued to perform CPR, the boy was transported to a nearby hospital where attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Sacramento -- A broken key at a local "Superstore" on Monday prevented access into a locked glass case containing firearms, ammunition and knives preventing sales to customers. Pictured here are two "Daisy" rifles, similar to the one coveted by "Ralphie" in the hilarious movie, "A Christmas Story," set in Hammond, Indiana (where I was born). Thanks to a broken key, neither of these rifles "shot out an eye" -- at least not on Monday! I looked unsuccessfully for a lamp made from a mannequin leg, but it's a "Special Order" item.
