THE BRONX (PIX11) – A bizarre assault the day after Christmas has police searching for a woman they say sexually abused an octogenarian inside her Bronx home.

The suspect, believed to be in her 30s, walked up to the victim’s door just before 11 p.m. Friday, and told the female resident, 81, she worked for a hospital.

Thinking that the suspect might have been sent to care for her husband, the woman let her in.

It was then, police say, the younger woman began touching the resident’s groin and breast areas before fleeing.

The woman is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 135 pounds.

Anyone with information is urged to call the anonymous police tip line (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
