LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police are investigating an attempted robbery where an elderly Lebanon woman told officers she was watching TV at home when she noticed a stranger in the room with her.

The intruder told the woman he had a gun and asked "where's the money" before the woman screamed and the man fled the home in the 800 block of Reinoehl Street, city police said.

The incident occurred just before 10 p.m. Thursday.

Police said the woman described the stranger as about 5'5" tall and in his younger teens.

She said he did not display the gun and she did not see one.

Police said they believe the stranger entered the home through an unlocked side door.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lebanon police at 717-272-6611.
