Her attacker took her keys and went into her home after the attack and robbed her 54-year-old husband, police said.

The attack is described as a black man, between the ages of 30 and 33, standing between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 and weighing between 165 and 185 pounds. The man had black hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion. He was wearing a black ski cap with red trim and a dark-colored sweater, police said.
