Two elderly sisters were attacked early Wednesday in an apparent robbery in their home in Billings, Mont., according to the Billings Gazette. Two men broke into the home of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth around 2:45 a.m., assaulting the sisters and taking items from the home, police said. The women, ages 79 and 90, are recovering in St. Vincent’s Hospital in Billings and police are still searching for suspects and a motive. “We are saddened by events that occurred early Wednesday morning in Billings, MT.,” Charity Sr. Maureen Hall, the order’s community director, said in a statement. “Fortunately the sisters are recovering from the injuries they sustained.”
