Three Men Kick In Door, Rob Elderly Woman

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A scary night for an elderly woman in the Whites Creek area when three men broke into her home.

Metro Police said the 85-year-old woman was sitting on her couch at home on Brick Church Pike around midnight when three men dressed in black kicked in the door.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, said she tried to get away, but one of them grabbed her as the others went through the house. She said the man put plastic over her face and jerked her into a door frame. She suffered bruises to her face and arm.  

The men went through her house, and stole her purse and a television. Police said no weapons were seen.

"Those big guys come around and rob old people. I haven't got any respect for them whatsoever," the woman told NewsChannel 5.

The woman told NewsChannel 5 that someone posing as an officer with the Rutherford County Drug Division walked inside her house last July and robbed her at gun point.  

The three men have not been captured. Police gathered forensic evidence from the scene and they're hoping it will lead to the suspects.

The woman said she plans on getting better locks and home security to try to prevent this from happening again.
