YAZOO CITY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Officials continue to search for the man who beat and robbed a woman during a home invasion in Yazoo City on Tuesday night. 

According to her family, 85-year-old Jeanelle Fates answered her front door for a person she thought needed help.

Instead, the man punched her in the face and forced his way into her home.

Fates suffered facial fractures and a brain bleed during the attack. Her hands were also bloodied when he snatched the rings off of her fingers.

If you have any information about this attack, call 662-746-TIPS.

We will have much more on this later.
