ROSEMEAD, Calif. (KABC) -- A woman was hospitalized Monday evening after being attacked with a crowbar during a home invasion in Rosemead, authorities said.
Deputies responded about 10 p.m. to a report of a burglary in a gated community in the 2500 block of Falling Leaf Avenue, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Temple station said.
