A woman was severely beaten in her home early Sunday morning and a man from East Stroudsburg is locked up, accused of the crime.

Police said Alexander Gibson, 25, broke into the woman’s home in Emerald Lake Estates near Long Pond about 4 a.m. Sunday and beat and kicked the woman. The victim told police Gibson also tried to rape her.

When officers arrived at the home they found the woman on the floor with her one-year-old child.

The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment.  Her condition has not been released.

Gibson was arrested hours later at his mother’s home in East Stroudsburg. He is charged with burglary, assault and attempted rape.
