Hunters Point home invader attacks victim with hammer, knife

A 47-year-old man was attacked with a hammer after a female suspect barged in his home Friday night, said police.

At around 11:23 p.m. the victim entered his home in Hunters Point near the intersection of Oakdale Avenue and Baldwin Court.

When he started to unlock his front door a 35-year-old woman walked up behind him and then pushed her way into the home. Once inside she pulled out a hammer and tried to strike the man, who tackled her.

After the suspect pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the man, she fled.

No arrest has been made in the case and the man sustained injuries to his head, but refused to go to the hospital.
