A D.C. woman who was tied up in a violent home invasion said she opened her door believing it was her mail carrier.

Kathleen Clark, 69, who lives on Massachusetts Avenue in Northwest, said the man barged into her home Wednesday and demanded money.

The man dragged Clark around the house until she gave him $40 from her purse and a jar full of change. Then he tied her up with the cord from a vacuum cleaner.

"I was scared to death," Clark said. "I thought he was unnecessarily brutal and thuggish. 

"There was no reason for him to do that," Clark said.

Police are still working to find her attacker.
