Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for 16-year-old Naushkoniwahega Hamilton, for the beating of an elderly woman during a home invasion early Tuesday morning.
Hamilton, who will be charged as an adult, is being sought for attempted robbery.
78-year-old Janet Jordan is now resting at home with friends following the assault in her home near 20th and Deer Park Boulevard. She told police she heard a noise around 12:30 a.m. at her front door, and before she could open it, the suspect kicked it in and knocked her down.
The suspect ended up leaving without taking anything.
