An elderly woman is in hospital after suffering a “brutal” attack in her own home in Dolfor.

The attack was reported on Monday, June 19, after a neighbour found the 88-year-old with “significant facial and arm injuries”, said a police spokesperson.

She was taken to hospital where she remains in a stable condition.

Anyone who has information is urged to contact Dyfed-Powys Police immediately on 101.

Police are also asking that anyone who has a dash cam and was driving along Upper Dolfor Road between 9am and 5pm check their footage to see if they can provide any evidence that could assist the investigation.
