“Brutally bashed

POLICE are searching for a teenager who brutally bashed an elderly deaf woman in her Bendigo home.
Glenice Gouldthorp, 66, suffered serious facial injuries when she was attacked in her Chapel Street home late on Thursday night.

Detective Sergeant Brendon Murphy, from the Bendigo Criminal Investigation Unit, said Mrs

Gouldthorp was at home with a friend, who is also deaf, when she walked the friend to the front gate about 11pm.

Det. Sgt Murphy said Mrs Gouldthorp, who cannot use a telephone, wanted to arrange a taxi for her friend, but lights were out in the
