Elderly Houston woman stabbed multiple times during home invasion

Houston police say an elderly woman was stabbed multiple times during a home invasion in the Timbergrove neighborhood.

Officers were called to the woman's apartment on West 18th Street around 11 a.m. Friday, but police say it is possible the attack occurred overnight.

The woman was found stabbed multiple times in her shower after a maintenance worker in the area noticed something unusual to him and notified his management.

The woman was taken to the hospital, and she is said to be in stable condition.

Police say the woman's car was possibly stolen. Investigators say the apartment showed signs of forced entry, but it is unclear at this time if anything was taken.

Investigators are the on scene trying to determine if there is any surveillance video that could help lead to a suspect.
