CMPD Searching for Suspects in December 28, 2014 Broad Daylight Home Invasion that Injured Elderly Woman

From, December 29, 2014

Police continue their search for three people who broke into a house, assaulted an elderly woman and stole her car early Sunday, December 28, 2014 afternoon.


The 72-year old victim, who family members tell us is named Norma Messer, is back home from the hospital. Her husband Jim told us two men and a woman came through the open back door while his wife was home alone, tied her to a chair, put a bag over her head and hit her several times. Her neighbor on Westcliff Drive, Susie Thomason spoke with us when she heard the news.

“It was just terrifying to see this happen to the neighbor right across from me,” Thomason said.

Police tell us the break-in took place at 1:00 in the afternoon.

“We all support each other around here,” Thomason said. “For this to happen this time of day, it was surprising.”

Messer’s injuries included a cut to her forehead and one to the back of her head, which her husband says required several staples. Police say the suspects also stole Messer’s car, a 2005 teal-green Nissan Altima. The license plate number is either PWP-1292 or PWP-1252 and there may be damage to the front passenger side of the car.

“Just please come forward, turn yourself in,” Thomason said. “Turn yourself in.”

If you see a car fitting that description and license plate number, CMPD says to give them a call right away.
