Omaha police have arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection with last week's assault of a 78-year-old woman in her home.

Police said Naushkoniwaheega Hamilton was arrested Saturday night in Omaha after officers received a tip. A warrant was issued for the teen Thursday.

Police say the teen broke into the home of Janet Jordan last Tuesday around 12:30 a.m.

Jordan said the robber knocked her over and hit her several times in her head. He tried to take her television but fled without it.

Hamilton is facing a charge of attempted robbery.

Jordan is now out of the hospital and staying with friends while she recovers.
