WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two women have been arrested in a violent home invasion that left a Korean War veteran with head injuries, Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies say.
Christy Caudill and Clintona Thompson were arrested Friday; both are charged with robbery and burglary.
Deputies say the two women broke into the home of an 84-year-old man who lives in Fort Gay. The break-in happened last month, and the victim did not report the incident for several days.
He told deputies the women hit him in the head with a tire iron and stole cash. Deputies say the pair cleaned up the victim and made him promise not to report the crime.
Investigators say the money stolen from the victim was used to buy drugs.
