LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An 89-year old woman had a rude and violent wake up call last night when a man hit her in the face.

A police report said the assault happened in the 2100 block of Paul Avenue in Lufkin. A man broke a window at the home to gain entry. After he hit the woman, he demanded money from her and searched the house.

Police aren't sure if he actually got away with anything. The only description of the suspect is that it was a tall thin man. Anyone with information is asked to call the Lufkin police department.
