Police said the housekeeper started walking around the home trying to locate the voice; when she was hit with something in the back of the head.

"She heard what she believes was a women`s voice with a foreign accent," Ladue Police Sergeant Ray Hahs said. "We don`t know if there was more than one person or if that person was talking on a cell phone, but all indications right now is that there was only one person."

The suspect got away with a few items.
