DANBURY, CT (WFSB/AP) -
An 85-year-old Danbury woman suffered a broken hip and cuts and bruises when police say she was pulled from her bed and assaulted in a home invasion.
An unidentified woman screamed loudly enough to draw the attention of neighbors who tried to intervene in the incident on Saturday.
Several people including a 10-year-old child opened the door of the home on West Wooster Street, police said.
Police said the man, who was later identified as 26-year-old Donny Jackson, of Danbury, waved a gun at neighbors who tried to intervene and that he pulled the woman into the hallway and shoved her against the walls.
Police said Jackson was arrested after a 14-hour search and is being held on $1 million bond. He was charged with home invasion, first-degree burglary, assault of an elderly person, first-degree robbery and other offenses.
The victim was taken to Danbury Hospital with "serious injuries" after suffering a broken hip, concussion and other injuries, police said.
Shortly before this assault, police said Jackson entered another apartment where he was "scared off by a female resident." He also stole items from an unoccupied apartment that same morning, police said.
It was not known Monday morning if Jackson is represented by a lawyer.
