A 75-year-old Jerusalem woman was assaulted at the entrance to her city home by a would-be robber on Thursday, in the latest in a series of attacks on seniors in the country, police said. The elderly woman was attacked by a 20-year-old suspected Jewish assailant after she opened the door of her central Jerusalem home, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The assailant fled the scene after the woman's husband came to her assistance. The senior, who was lightly injured in the late-afternoon incident, was evacuated to Jerusalem's Sha'are Tzedek Hospital. Last month, a 79-year-old woman who lived alone was savagely assaulted and robbed in her Jerusalem apartment.
