(08/16/10) GRAVESEND - Police say an 86-year-old woman and her home attendant were attacked this morning, leaving the attendant with a bloody finger.

Sophia said she's lived in the apartment complex on Murdock Court for six years and has never had an issue. She described her attacker as being approximately 30 years old, petite and female. Cops have not yet said if they believe the attack was an isolated incident. Police say the description of the attacker is unusual, especially for the neighborhood.

A security guard for the complex said that it does have security cameras, but not on the building where Sophia lives.
