An elderly female was attacked in her residence early Tuesday by a man who assaulted her, tied her up, and robbed her, Marina police said.

Corp. Bryan Whitaker of Marina's Patrol Division said the incident occurred shortly after 5 a.m. when the male suspect entered a home in the 300 block of Carmel Avenue, struck the victim with an object, bound her, and demanded money.

He took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled, Whitaker said.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact Marina police at 884-1210.
