Authorities in Michigan say a man posing as a home health care worker sexually assaulted a 97-year-old woman.

Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said the man assaulted the woman Friday after using an open door wall to enter her ground-level apartment in the Detroit suburb of Harrison Township.

Hackel tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens and WXYZ-TV that the man was about 50 to 60 years old. He said the attacker told the woman he was a caregiver and was there to give her a massage.

Harrison Township is about 20 miles northeast of Detroit.
