Woman hospitalized after beating and home invasion

A Berrien County woman was hospitalized after a violent home invasion over the weekend, and the suspect is still on the loose.

It happened just before 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 8,000 of East Rd. in Lakeside, which is in Chikaming Township.

Police say a man broke into the home of the woman, 61, tied her up and then beat her, before making off with an undisclosed amount of money.

The victim was discovered by relatives the next morning, and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 20's, between 5'7" and 5'8", with brown eyes and a thin build.

Anyone with information should call Michigan State Police at 269-683-4411.
