Lee County deputies are on the scene of a violent home invasion in Fort Myers.
According to authorities, a woman was taken to the hospital after being assaulted in the Pine Manor neighborhood.
A family member who lives a few blocks away from the home says he ran to the home and found his aunt in her room bleeding from the face.
He says she told him a man broke into the home while she was sleeping. The suspect demanded money and started beating her. That’s when she pretended to be dead, and the man left.
