A stolen car could help police track down the person responsible for a violent home invasion in Anne Arundel County.

A woman in her 60s told police she was sleep in her home on Chesapeake Mobile Court in Hanover when a man entered through a door that had been left open early Tuesday morning.

Police say the man held her down on the couch, hit her with a heavy object then took her money and car keys. Then he left the house and stole her car, a 2002 Hyundai Accent.

"This has got to be a true punk, that would assault a 60-something-year-old woman, to break into their home and assault [her] in the middle of the morning," said an Anne Arundel County police officer.

Police are searching for the car, which has Maryland license plate number DPB-946.

Anyone with information is asked to call Anne Arundel County police.
