Montenegro was able to free herself and call 911 more than a half an hour later. Both women were taken to the hospital where they were treated for their injuries.
“These are individuals are brazen,” said Zabaleta. “To batter a 91-year-old lady? It’s unheard of.”
The two attackers are described “white, Latin males.” One man kept his face covered, Det. Zabaleta said.
When they left with some jewelry and cash. They also took a vehicle which was parked out front. It was later recovered.
