Police say a woman was injured Wednesday night when a man wearing a Halloween mask broke into her second-story apartment through the balcony and demanded money from her.

It happened at Garden Courtyards Apartments, on Garnett Road, near 41st Street, around 8:45 p.m.

Before he left, police say the suspect pistol-whipped the woman and fired off a single round, though no one was hit by the bullet. Police say the suspect believed the victim had recently come into money, but he left the apartment empty-handed.

Officers searched the property of Garden Courtyards Apartments Wednesday night, believing the suspect to still be in the complex.

An infant in the apartment was uninjured. Police say the woman was taken to the hospital in good condition and is expected to be treated and released Wednesday night.
