BILLINGS, Montana (AP) — Police in Billings say two elderly nuns were taken to the hospital after two men broke into their house, assaulted them as they slept and stole items from the house.

Sgt. Kevin Iffland says both women were taken to St. Vincent Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries including cuts, bruises and broken bones.

The men broke into the house at about 2:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Iffland says very little information on the assailants was available, but they were still waiting Wednesday morning to interview one of the women. He did not say what was stolen.

Iffland said reports indicate that both women are with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth. Tax records list the Roman Catholic religious order in Leavenworth, Kans., as the owner of the house.
