81-year-old woman brutally beaten in el cerrito

Sorry. More news to make you sick... In El Cerrito, California, an elderly woman is in critical condition after being found severely beaten and possibly sexually assaulted over the weekend: Elderly El Cerrito woman brutally beaten.

The woman, described as an 81-year-old Asian female in a white coat, was found bleeding and badly injured in a dark corner near a tire store on Saturday morning. Police say she was dissheveled and unable to talk, and was airlifted to a hospital:
Ochoa arrived to work around 9 a.m. to find the woman, wearing a blood-stained white coat, struggling to pull herself up on a stack of tires in the store parking lot on the 10700 block of San Pablo Avenue.

"I asked her if she was OK, and she wasn't really able to talk," said Ochoa, a 34-year-old Vallejo resident. "So, I ran inside and called 911, and when I did that, police already were starting to show up."
It sounds like police don't have any possible suspects or motives. They don't have a lot to go on, and are hoping witnesses will come forward. Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call police at 510-620-6643. More here: El Cerrito woman, 81, found badly beaten, possibly sexually assaulted.
