I-Team: Cleveland police investigating home invasion in same neighborhood where 94-year-old was killed

CLEVELAND -- The FOX 8 I-Team has learned Cleveland police are investigating another home invasion in the same neighborhood where last week a home invasion left a 94-year-old woman dead and her 74-year-old daughter hurt.

The latest case happened Friday night, and the victims were a man and woman in their 60s and 70s.

It began with a break-in in the 3600 block of East 65th, not far from the break-in on Gertrude Avenue that turned deadly.

In the Friday night case, police say a 64-year-old woman grabbed a pole to defend herself, but the intruder grabbed the pole and hit the man there who is 72 years old.

All that, and the attacker got away with a total of about $60.

As he left, he threatened the victims by saying he would come back if they called the police.

Investigators are trying to determine if this case and the one from last week are connected.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,500 for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person responsible in the robbery.
