A 83-year-old woman was injured last week after three men reportedly broke into her Los Altos Hills home and attacked her. The suspects ransacked the home and stole various items, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's deputies received a call about the home invasion on the 27000 block of Altamont Road on Aug. 23 and arrived to find the resident had suffered injuries during the attack, including lacerations and cuts. She was reportedly treated by medical staff at the scene.
The victim was alone at the house at the time of the robbery, and she heard the intruders and confronted them, according to the Sheriff's Office. The suspects were "physically aggressive" and demanded she tell them where her valuables were stashed, said Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Glennon.
"The victim is pretty shaken up, as you can imagine," Glennon said.
A gardener later heard the victim calling for help, and he called law enforcement for help.
The Sheriff's Office is declining to disclose what items were stolen in the crime. The Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit is investigating the crime. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at 408-808-4500, or the anonymous tip line at 408-808-4431.

North Whisman apartment fire
Mountain View firefighters extinguished an apartment complex fire Aug. 23 in the North Whisman neighborhood, according to a statement released by the department.
The fire started shortly before 7:30 p.m. inside a six-unit complex on the 300 block of Easy Street, according to fire officials. The fire originated in the kitchen of one of the units and spread to the cabinets, stove pipe and into the attic space under the roof.
The fire was fully extinguished about 19 minutes after firefighters arrived, and did not spread to the other units in the building. Firefighters carved out a hole in the roof in order to clear thick smoke that had built up inside the apartment, fire officials said.
No one was injured in the fire, and three adults and one child were displaced from the apartment and elected to stay with family nearby. The damage to the apartment is estimated to be $25,000, according to the department. While fire officials did not state what sparked the fire, it does not appear to have been cooking related.
