Dec. 19, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

CATLETTSBURG, Ky. -- An 88-year-old Boyd County woman was the victim of a strong-arm robbery Monday night, according to a news release from the Boyd County Sheriff's Department.

Mary K. Thacker, a resident of the 8200 block of Durbin Road, Catlettsburg, responded to someone knocking on her door about 7:45 p.m. Monday when two men forced their way into her home. One of them pushed her to the floor and held her face-down while the other ransacked her residence and stole her wallet which contained an undisclosed amount of money.

The woman sustained minor injuries and was transported to King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, according to the release.
