SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted and robbed an elderly woman at knifepoint Wednesday in the city’s International District.

Police spokesman Jeff Kappel says a woman in her 80s was walking in the back door of an apartment complex when a man followed her inside. Kappel says the man punched the woman in the head and body, knocked her to the ground, sexually assaulted her, then stole her money before running away.

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.
