LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. — A 74-year-old woman was brutally beaten in her garage after picking up a package outside her Lake Oswego home last week, police said.

The attack occurred around 11 p.m. at a home near the intersection of South Shore Boulevard and Canyon Drive.

The woman's husband discovered her in the garage. Medics rushed her to a hospital. Police said her injuries were serious.

Investigators described the suspect as a 25- to 35-year-old white woman with tan skin and long, brown curly hair. She is 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7 and about 130 pounds. She has a slender build. Police said she was wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt and khaki pants.

"I will never understand how someone could do this to a 74-year-old lady, or any human being, for that matter," said the victim's son, Joe. "It was brutal. It was violent. If anybody has any information on who this person is, or any suspicious activity, please contact the Lake Oswego Police Department."

Investigators ask anyone who may have seen a person on foot near South Shore Boulevard and Canyon Drive between 10 p.m. and midnight on July 30 to call Lake Oswego police.
