Police have named the man who allegedly beat an 87-year-old Democratic committeewoman and her 62-year-old son early Tuesday in a West Philadelphia home invasion, police said.
Police identified the attacker as Jimmy Morrison, 41, and said he was still on the loose. His last known address was on the 4900 block of D Street in the city's Feltonville section.
Police said Morrison knocked on the door of the home on the 5600 block of Catharine Street about 3:10 a.m. and asked to use the bathroom.
The 62-year-old man let him in and Morrison pounced, police said. He found Yvonne Gaines, the committeewoman, on the second floor and attacked her there.
