Police: Florida teen stabbed elderly neighbor, took cards

Police say a Florida 18-year-old stabbed his elderly neighbor, took her credit cards and left her for dead.

The Pensacola News Journal reports Tyler Hyden Owens was charged Monday with attempted murder and home invasion.

Pensacola police spokesman Mike Wood said the 82-year-old victim remains hospitalized after being found on Sunday, hours after the attack the night before.

Wood said the victim was able to describe the man who stabbed her multiple times after invading her home.

Police officers arrested Owens after a search of the apartment where he was staying turned up the victim’s credit cards, her blood-covered purse and a large knife.

A police report says he had scratches and gouges on his hands. Owens is being held without bond. Records don’t list a lawyer.
