Clay Township police say they responded to a home in the 9300 block of Nook Friday night on a welfare check, never expecting to find what they did.
When police arrived and entered the home, they saw a woman on the floor who apparently had been bound.
Police were able to help the woman until paramedics arrived.
According to police, the woman was the victim of a home invasion and assault. The woman was transported to the hospital where she is recovering.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
