Elderly woman fights off assailant

A 75-year-old woman fought off a would-be robber who attacked her at dawn on Monday outside her house in Limassol.

The woman opened the kitchen door to go out at around 5.30am when she was attacked by the black-clad assailant.

The elderly woman resisted and fought with the man who hit her in a bid to get away.

She was rushed to hospital where she was treated for a blow to the head and a bite to the right hand.

The woman described the assailant as being 1.75 metres tall and stocky. At the time, he was wearing black trousers and a black top with a white line on the side. He also wore a cap and had his mouth covered.
