The Sacramento Police Department is seeking information from the community regarding a recent case of elder abuse.
Shortly after 8 a.m. Friday, a woman in her 70s was assaulted by four men as she was walking in the area of Florin Road and 24th Street, a police news release states.
The men got out of a large black car that pulled up to the woman as she walked on 24th Street from Florin Road. Police said they don't know the motive for the assault, but robbery may have been a factor as the men dumped the contents of the woman's shopping bag onto the ground.
The woman suffered cuts and bruises. Police said she was treated at an area hospital and released.
The suspects were described as African American. Three reportedly were in their 20s, and the victim told police one appeared to be in his 40s. All were described as about 6 feet tall, with athletic-type builds. Some of the men were reportedly wearing red shirts and red shorts.
