    An Enfield woman in her 90s was the victim of a home invasion on Monday.

    The elderly woman answered a knock at her door at her Windsor Street home thinking she was receiving a package.

    "She opened the door and the person forced his way into the home, knocking her down," Chief Carl Sferrazza said.

    The woman's daughter found her injured and bleeding. The victim could not remember many details about the man or the incident, but police believe it happened between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday.

    "Her jewelry was missing and the TV set, as well as all of the phone lines appear to have been cut outside," Sferrazza said.

    He urges residents who feel uncomfortable about a situation to call police and let officers investigate.

    "We don't normally have this type of thing going on. We haven't had a rash of these, but you know, caution is a good thing to be practicing right now."
