Las Vegas police say a 65-year-old woman suffered substantial injuries after she opened her door to an attacker on April 9.

It happened at about 6:50 p.m. at a residence in the 200 block of Pershing Drive, which is near Alta Drive and Jones Boulevard.

Police say that the woman was struck with some sort of weapon or object. They do not believe it was a gun.

The woman was transported to UMC Trauma and her current condition is unknown.

No one has been arrested at this time but police do not believe it was a completely random attack. They believe that the attacker and the woman knew each other.

Nothing was taken from the home and the police are investigating the attack as a battery.
