PA - Elderly Mennonite Women Attacked in Apparent Hate Crime
Police say three elderly Mennonite women were tied up and attacked with a stun gun, during a violent home invasion near Lancaster..........
The victims, who are between 84 and 90 years old, were found several hours later by a relative.
They remained hospitalized Sunday.
Police say Dereck Taylor Holt, 22, posed as an insurance salesman to gain access into the home on Friday, according to investigators..............
"This is a hate crime," Steffen told Lancaster Online. He added that police will contact the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission on Monday regarding the assault................
"They suffered multiple electrical shocks, were incapacitated and left," Steffen told the newspaper. "They were unable to move for a long period of time. That could have led to bad things like blood clots and positional asphyxia."..............
Holt, who has no fixed address, was arrested Saturday under circumstances that have not been disclosed. Holt was charged with 21 total counts including aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, burglary and other offenses for the alleged assault in rural central Pennsylvania.
He was being held on $1 million bail and it was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
This is despicable....hope he rots in jail......

Completely despicable. Quite a guy who feels like robbery isn't enough, he also needs to stun gun old women.
