STOCKTON, CA - An older couple was hurt when an intruder burst into their Civic Center district home Tuesday morning and punched them, say Stockton police.
The intruder, which the victims described as a black man in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, with a light complexion, fled after taking the woman's purse containing a cellphone, cash and several miscellaneous items, according to the police report.
The couple was inside their home on the 1100 block of W. Park Street when a man broke into the back door, they told responding officers. They said the robber left through the back door and went over a neighbor's fence.
Witnesses said the man was seen running on westbound W. Park Street and then northbound on N. Argonaut Street.
The man and woman were transported to a local hospital to be treated for abrasions and cuts.
