A 74-year-old woman is in critical condition after she was savagely attacked with a blunt object in an indoor parking lot on Cavendish Blvd. in Côte Saint-Luc yesterday morning.

Such a tragic incident is completely out of the ordinary in this otherwise tranquil and peaceful neighbourhood. While police speculate that this may have been a robbery that went bad the woman lies in a coma in hospital, in critical condition.

Police routinely remind residents, especially seniors, to be aware of their surroundings when withdrawing money from the bank. Nevertheless, this is a highly unusual situation in a suburb that prides itself in being the safest one on the Island of Montreal.

No arrests have been made yet however there is surveillance video showing a person entering the garage behind the victims car carrying a baseball bat.
