Riverside police Monday were seeking a knife-wielding attacker suspected of stabbing and beating an 80-year-old woman and stabbing a dog.

The woman was in serious but stable condition with multiple stab wounds and blunt-force trauma to her body, the Riverside Police Department said.

She was attacked Monday morning in her mobile home in a trailer park in 4000 block of Pierce Street in the city's La Sierra neighborhood.

Police described the attack as a home-invasion robbery and said the woman's 1995 Toyota Camry was stolen.
