VISTA, Calif.  — A San Diego County woman has been attacked and stabbed in her home by an intruder dressed as the Grim Reaper on Halloween.

U-T San Diego says a woman in Vista told sheriff's deputies that she was blow-drying her hair in the bathroom of her town house shortly before 2 a.m. Friday when someone dressed like the Reaper stabbed her several times and fled.

Sheriff's Sgt. Nick Maryn says the woman was treated for a scratch to her scalp and injuries to her upper body and back.

It's unclear how the intruder got into the home. Deputies used dogs to search the area but couldn't find the attacker.
