      3 sought in robbery and beating
      Alton police today are looking for three teenaged boys suspected of breaking into the home of an 87-year-old woman, tying her up and robbing her.
      Police said the three were identified by the victim, Nellie Richey, 87, of 918 Riley Ave., Alton, as being the same three who were in her yard Thursday night, and who came again Friday morning before daylight to rob her.
      The three were identified by name by neighbors who also saw them in the victim's front yard the night before.
      Police said the suspects broke a storm window and removed a glass pane to get inside the house.
      They came into the woman's room and tied her up with pillow cases from pillows on the bed where she lay sleeping.
      She said the largest of the three burglars twisted her arm hard enough to open a bleeding wound. She was treated for that wound at an Alton hospital.
      After tying her up, the burglars took a portable television, a clock radio and a wall clock. They then ripped the telephone cord from the wall and left.
