WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities are looking for one or more intruders who they say broke into the Wichita home of a 100-year-old woman and sexually assaulted her.

Police told reporters Friday that the victim walked to a neighbor's house Tuesday morning, saying there were two people inside her home. The woman told police she was awakened during the night by intruders.

Wichita Police Captain Troy Livingston says that rape is always a deplorable crime but that this victim's age makes the case even more disturbing.

Police believe burglary was the main motive for the break-in. The woman lives alone.
