(AP) Authorities in central Pennsylvania say three elderly Mennonite women were tied up and assaulted with a stun gun by a home invader who raged against their faith.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports that the women, who are between 84 and 90 years old, remained hospitalized Saturday.

Police say the intruder posed as an insurance salesman Friday and was let into the Clay Township house.

They say the assailant ransacked the house, poured household chemicals on floors and furniture and read passages from a Bible the women had, then vandalized it.

Police say the suspect indicated he was once a Mennonite. WPMT-TV reports the man fled with cash and valuables.

The women were found several hours later by a relative who called the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department.
