NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police have released a photo of the suspect wanted in connection with a violent Harlem home invasion Monday morning.
Authorities are looking for 57-year-old Larry Brown, who police believe stabbed his 82-year-old aunt multiple times after demanding money. Police also said Brown tied up the victim’s husband during the attack at 210 West 139th St. at around 11 a.m.
The elderly woman covered in blood made it out of the house, where her pleas for help were answered by a plumber working next door. She was taken to Harlem Hospital, where she is in stable condition.
Earlier in the day, the victim’s son told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones that the family had a good idea of who was responsible.
