Even on a street where many residents have a tale of their property being stolen, the home invasion robbery and assault of a 75-year-old woman today shocked many residents of Awaiki Street in Waipahu.
Police said the woman was sitting in the carport of her house Friday morning when she was confronted by a man believed to be in his 20s. During a brief struggle, the man reportedly hit the woman in the face. The assailant stole the family's pickup truck and left with other unspecified property.
The woman was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital. The robber remained at large yesterday evening.
