(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.

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.
