Woman, 62 hurt in attack during burglary; HOT SPOTS CRIME.
THREE men in balaclavas tied up a 62-year-old woman in her own home before robbing her in a "cowardly attack".
The attack, in Shirley Common, near Ashbourne, left the woman with a suspected spinal injury, Derbyshire Police said.
It took place on Saturday at just before 8pm.
Detective inspector Shaun McElheron from CID, who is leading the investigation, said: "This was a very cowardly attack on a lone woman and the aggression and violence used was just not necessary."
Police have also confirmed they are exploring links to an incident in Ednaston, Derbyshire, last month.
There, a couple in their sixties were tied up in their own home by three men armed with crowbars.
