Elderly Springs Woman Attacked In Elevator By Stranger

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – There was a big scare for an elderly woman at a Colorado Springs senior home when she was attacked by a stranger in the elevator.

The woman, who didn’t want her identity released, said a man got in the elevator with her and then for no reason at all grabbed her and threw her to the floor.

“He attacked me in the elevator, he grabbed me by my throat, he threw me down on the floor and was trying to choke me to death,” the woman said.

The woman says she started screaming and kicking but the attacker would not let her go. Two other men came running and rescued her.

Police arrested the attacker and said he may have had some sort of mental health condition.
