East Albany woman scared by home invasion

November 26, 2007

Albany -- An East Albany woman says she is scared after fighting a young man who broke into her home early Monday morning.

67 year old Lillie Shellhouse says she is bruised and frightened for her elderly father and herself, after her mobile home on East Broad Avenue was broken into twice in the last week. Her front door was broken by burglars who ransacked her home Wednesday.

Then about 3 AM  she heard a noise  and was attacked by a man carrying a large stick, who rushed through the broken door. Shellhouse said "I started screaming, and he shoved me on a couch. And he told me he would hit me in the face with that stick. He had a stick about this long and this big around. He said he'd hit me with it."  

 Shellhouse said the robber appeared to be about 16 years old, and thinks he lives in the same neighborhood.

 He took her purse, with some money and her checkbook. She has lived in the same mobile home park for 30 years, but is scared to stay now.
