Magazine seller attacks 84-Year-old woman

CENTENNIAL - An 84-year-old Centennial woman may have escaped further injury by an attacker by playing dead.


It happened on Tuesday near Arapahoe and I-25. Investigators say a 23-year-old man came to her door, trying to sell magazine subscriptions.


When she said no he entered her home, and started choking her. Edward Irving is currently in custody for among other things, suspicion of attempted murder.


Investigators say it's likely the only reason why her attacker left is that he may have thought she was dead. The victim fell to the ground and pretended to be unconscious.


The victim returned from the hospital on Thursday. She suffered serious injuries to her head and neck.


9News has learned Edward Irving was working for a company that hires people to go door-to-door. He had recently come to Colorado from St. Louis.


Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson says Irving's rap sheet includes drugs, burglary and assault.


He says nothing was taken from the woman's home.


 Sheriff Robinson recommends taking simple precautions when answering the door, particularly if you are alone. One tip -- act like you are having a conversation with someone in your house. That way, the person at the door thinks you are not alone.
