Memphis police are searching for a man who they say raped an 80-year-old woman during a home invasion robbery in East Memphis.
Around 2 a.m. Tuesday, police said, a man armed with a hammer broke into the woman's Chatham Village condo in the 1200 block of Bristol Drive. He broke in through a back door and demanded money from the woman.
He then sexually assaulted the woman and fled. Police said there have been similar home invasions reported in the area off Park and Quince roads.
