An elderly Shreveport woman is lucky to be ok today, but she had some frightening moments during the middle of the day on Tuesday.

A man knocked on the door of her home on Bellmead off of Youree Drive and when she opened the door, he forced his way into the home. Police say he tied the woman up and forced her into the closet. She is in her 80's and remained in the closet for a couple of hours until she was able to call for help. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out and she is expected to be ok. Police are still searching for the suspect today.
