When she opened the door, they pushed her down and searched her apartment for valuables.The woman managed to crawl to her phone and call her nurse, who contacted the police. When the police arrived, they found the door locked from within, and broke it down. The suspects attempted to flee through the window, but were arrested by additional police forces waiting outside.
Paramedics brought the woman to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa for treatment.
