Senior citizen fights off home invader in Rye
RYE, New York (WABC) -- A 72-year-old woman is recovering after fighting off an intruder at an exclusive, senior community in Rye, New York.

Some apartments were evacuated after a suspicious bag was left behind by the suspect. Police say the bag contained mostly golf balls and string.
The victim was taken to the hospital and has since been released.
There was no forced entry into the apartment and nothing was taken.
Police continue to search for the suspect. They released a surveillance photo hoping it would leave to his arrest.
