An 88-year-old resident at a senior-living facility was reportedly raped earlier this month, according to Houston police.

Authorities are looking for a man who broke a window and entered the Brookdale West University complex on June 11.

“I was appalled that it would happen,” said Sandra Gunn, a realtor whose own mother is a resident at the senior-living facility. “I’m very concerned for my mother and her friends that live here.”

Those familiar with the facility say it lacks locks on its windows and a full-time after-hours security officer. In addition, there was no functional security camera system in place.

“How can you have a property like this without security? How can you have a property like this without cameras that record? Why do you have cameras if they’re not recording to use them?” said Gunn.
