Auburn woman assaulted, robbed in Thanksgiving Day home invasion

An Auburn woman was assaulted with a baseball bat, kicked and restrained with duct tape on Thanksgiving morning by two intruders at her home, Auburn police reported today.

Police said the intruders, a man and a woman, wore dark clothing and gloves. They entered the woman's home about 2 a.m. and confronted the victim in her bedroom, demanding a specific item, which police did not divulge.

Officer in Charge James Dalton, in a written report of the case, noted that the man referred to the resident by a name other than her own.

The woman grabbed a baseball bat to defend herself, but the male suspect was able to wrest it from her and then assault her with it, causing minor injuries.

The victim then was forced to the ground and the male suspect kicked her, Dalton reported.

Both intruders used duct tape to tape the victim's mouth, hands and feet, he said.

They also stole cash from the resident's purse,then partially pushed her down a stairwell before they fled the residence via a downstairs doorway.

Dalton said the victim was treated and released from the hospital for her injuries.
