Police: Woman, 92, Found Beaten, Bound After Home Invasion

Police are looking for two men who they say broke into a New Jersey home, ransacked the place and tied up a 92-year-old woman in her basement.

Ewing Police Chief John Stemler III tells NJ.com officers investigating a possible burglary Tuesday morning found the woman.

Detective Nicholas Muscente tells WPVI-TV the men beat her, bound her with appliance cords and dragged her to the basement. He says she suffered a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain and facial fractures in the home invasion.

Authorities say they haven't been able to obtain a detailed statement from the woman because of her injuries.

Stemler says police are stepping up patrols in the area. It's the second home invasion in Ewing this month.
