An elderly Tehama County woman was allegedly robbed and threatened with a knife at her home on Saturday morning.

Tehama County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a reported robbery at home on Johnson Road in Red Bluff. Deputies found 92-year-old Myrtle Walker in her home. Walker reported being robbed by an unknown man who had forced his way into her home.
