Woman injured in home invasion, suspect carjacks neighbor in escape

A woman was injured in a home invasion Thursday that later turned into a carjacking as the suspect made his escape, police said today.

The 56-year-old victim was watering plants outside her Sunset district home in the 1800 block of 46th Avenue about 8:44 p.m. when she went back inside to her kitchen and saw an armed man aged possibly 20 to 30 years old, police said.

The armed man demanded money from the victim’s safe, police said, and a struggle ensued between the two, resulting in injuries to the woman’s hands and face.

The suspect fled on foot without any cash, but then carjacked a silver four-door Honda that was being parked by a neighbor across the street, police said. The suspect fled in the Honda and remains at large.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening, and it doesn’t seem that the neighbor whose car was stolen was injured either.Bay Area NewsCarjackingCrimeCrime & Courtshome-invasionSan Francisco Police Department
