HT: Larrnell Cross

Police say three elderly Mennonite women were tied up and attacked with a stun gun, during a violent home invasion near Lancaster.

The attack happened Friday morning on the 300 block of Indiantown Road in Clay Township, according to LancasterOnline.com.

The victims, who are between 84 and 90 years old, were found several hours later by a relative.
They remained hospitalized Sunday….

[The offender] posed as an insurance salesman to gain access into the home on Friday, according to investigators.

[The offender] did not know the women, but it appears he targeted them because they were Mennonite, said Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Chief David Steffen….

The women were punched, shocked and tied up, according to police.

“They suffered multiple electrical shocks, were incapacitated and left,” Steffen told the newspaper. “They were unable to move for a long period of time. That could have led to bad things like blood clots and positional asphyxia.”

The women were hospitalized and “are doing remarkably well considering their age,” Steffen said.
