NORTH JACKSON — The Jackson Police Department said an elderly woman was tied up during a home invasion on Wednesday evening. Police said the suspects attacked and tied up the woman around 5 p.m. Wednesday and burglarized her home on Winchester Cove. “It’s just really tragic to hear that something like that would happen in our neighborhood,” neighbor Bill Walker said. Walker moved onto the street almost 20 years ago and lives not far from the victim. “We are just very, very shocked and very upset that something like this would happen,” he said. Police said two slender black men dressed in dark clothing tied up the woman and stole her 2014 Toyota Avalon and other items, but officers would not say what. Police confirmed authorities found the car Thursday morning in Humboldt. “We’re going to process it, and we hope to recover some evidence from it that will lead us in a direction that we’ll be able to hold some people accountable,” said Capt. Tyreece Miller with the Jackson Police Department. Police said the victim did manage to free herself and go to a neighbor‘s house for help. “You never know what’s gonna happen with these crazy people that just don’t care what happens,” neighbor Ned Robbins said. Neighbors plan to be more alert. “We get so comfortable with our pattern and with our routines that we forget that we have to be careful and look out for one another,” Walker said. Police would not comment on the woman‘s injuries but did say she was treated at a local hospital. Investigators said they have not made any arrests. If you have information, call Jackson police or Crime Stoppers at (731) 424-TIPS (8477).
