GILBERT, AZ - With her key in the front door, Jennifer Granado had almost made it inside her Gilbert home when a man grabbed her from behind, slammed her head into a wall and then smashed her face into a front window shattering the glass.
“It's just scary to think somebody could do that to you,” said Granado.
Grando has two large welts on her head from the attack that happened around 10 p.m. Friday night near Gilbert and Elliot Roads as she returned home from hanging out with friends.
The man stole her purse, a ring, and her earrings and then ran off.
Granado spent the night in the hospital, but she knows things could have been worse.
“Like everybody at the hospital is telling me at least you're still breathing you know. He could have killed me, you know. I have a little boy to be here for and just for someone to randomly do that it just the last thing I thought would ever happen to me,” said Granado.
Granado said she never saw or heard the man and therefore did not even get a good look at the man.
