SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two teenagers pretending to look for a lost dog attacked a 90-year-old woman in her San Bernardino home before demanding cash and stealing her car.
Sheriff's officials said Tuesday they're still seeking 18-year-old Andrew Landeros in the attack, and 18-year-old Eduardo Adan May is in custody.
The woman told authorities the two came to her door Thursday morning, asking if they could get into her back yard to look for a lost dog.
After she led them in, they put a shirt over her head and beat her to keep her quiet while they robbed the home. She was later able to walk to her neighbor's home to get help.
The car was later found abandoned near her home.
