SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Southaven police have issued an arrest warrant for a man wanted in an attack an 86-year-old woman at her home last month.

Lt. Mark Little tells The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1m6VTdM ) that authorities are looking for 23-year-old Kwame Becton. Little says Georgie McKee’s car was found in the Chicago area, where authorities believe Becton has ties.

Authorities say McKee was attacked Dec. 30. She suffered a black eye and bruises all over her body in the attack. She was treated and released from Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto and is recovering with relatives in Oxford.

Authorities say the assailant attacked McKee and then stole her 2003 Chevrolet Impala. She called a friend on New Year’s Eve, and the friend reported the attack to police.
