"You thought she was going to kill you?" asked Ron Jones. 

"Oh, yeah!" she said. 

Police said 26-year-old Lashandra Boyd is the prime suspect in the Aug. 8 daylight home invasion on Dorsey Avenue. They say she broke into the 73-year-old woman's home and waited for her to return.

When she walked through the front door, police said Boyd, who also goes by Starr Red, attacked. 

"I turned around, and the next thing I knew, I was on the floor," said the victim, who asked not to be identified. 

She said Boyd wrapped her wrist, eyes and feet with duct tape. The threatened her at knifepoint, demanding the PIN to her bank cards.

"And I'm on the floor bound from head to toe," she recounted. "All I was trying to do was answer her questions."

"I want your information. Where's your pocketbook? Where are your pin numbers? I want your password numbers," she listed. "And she would grind my hand."

Police arrested Boyd's alleged accomplice in the crime, Gelisa Lowe, on Aug. 22. But they've yet to catch up with Boyd.
