Attack prompts worries among senior citizens


Danbury officials are promising to improve security at a senior citizen apartment after an 85-year-old woman was assaulted in a home invasion.

Several residents of the Wooster Manor senior citizen apartments and their families told the News-Times they worry about safety.

Ana Caba says she's very concerned about her parents, particularly her father, who is blind.

An unidentified woman was pulled from her bed and beaten on Sept. 7.

Donny Jackson, a 26-year-old Danbury resident, has been charged with the attack. He's being held in lieu of $1 million bond.

It's not known if he's represented by a lawyer.

Officials say they will install cameras on each floor of the building, more police patrols and better lighting.
