A man who sexually assaulted an elderly woman during a robbery Sunday morning in south suburban Lansing may have committed a separate robbery one block away, less than a week earlier.

About 10:30 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a report of a home invasion in the 17100 block of Greenbay Avenue, according to Lansing police.

The homeowner, an elderly woman, told the officers that she was pulling into her attached garage when a man approached and demanded money, police said. The suspect took the woman into her home and sexually assaulted her, then took several items of jewelry and ran away.

A suspect with a similar description robbed an elderly man about 10 a.m. Thursday about a block away in the 17100 block of Lorenz Avenue, police said.

An elderly man was arriving to his house when a man approached, demanded his money and phone, then walked him inside the home for additional money, police said. The suspect then ran away.

The suspect was described as a black man, thought to be about 30 years old, standing about 5-foot-9, with short hair, a medium build, wearing dark clothing, police said.

http://www.newnation.org/Images/2017/DavidTWashington.jpgA northwest Indiana man has been charged with a series of crimes on both sides of the state lines that targeted seniors, and included the sexual assault of an 81-year-old woman in her home. Working off a composite sketch generated by victims of a series of crimes in south suburban Lansing, investigators found the cases that appeared to be related to similar crimes in Hammond, Indiana, and both departments began working together, according to Lansing police. The sketch eventually led to the Friday arrest of 34-year-old David T. Washington at his home.
