STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in central California say an 87-year-old woman used her walker to fight off a man who tried to sexually assault her while she slept.

Stockton police Officer Joe Silva says the woman woke last week to the intruder lifting her nightgown.

Silva says the man fled after she screamed and fended him off with her walker. Neighbors came to the woman’s aid after hearing the commotion.

The Sacramento Bee reported Friday (https://bit.ly/2xCmf4t ) that police are still searching for the suspect.

The newspaper says the woman sustained minor injuries.
