Memphis woman opens door for delivery, is attacked by unknown man

(WMC-TV) - A Memphis woman was attacked in her home Thursday after opening the door for what she thought was a special delivery.

According to police, the attack happened around 1:00 p.m. Thursday at a home near Isabelle and Faxon, when a suspect arrived at the woman's home and forced his way in.

"She was expecting a business delivery and she opened her door and was unexpectedly confronted by a violent suspect," Lt. Col. JM Willis said.

Police wouldn't say how the woman was attacked, but investigators at the scene could be seen collecting a hammer as evidence.

"Our suspect has only been described as a male," Willis said. We got very sketchy information on him."

Witnesses said the suspect took off on foot.  The victim, meanwhile, was transported to a local hospital in non-critical condition.

If you have any information that could help authorities, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
