A revered activist from Philadelphia remains on edge more than three years after a violent attack in her own home.

Now, she's coming forward and a reward is being offered with the hope that someone can help police find the person responsible.

55-year-old Marsha Moore is a truant officer and a self-proclaimed "constant server of her community."

"I love working with law enforcement, the children, anybody that's about change," said Moore.

On the morning of October 29th, 2010, Moore was inside her home on the 1900block of South Cecil Street in the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia.

She says she was about to begin her day when something happened.

"Only thing I remember is waking up seeing my hands full of blood," said Moore.

Moore says she went to the bathroom and saw she had severe injuries to her face and head.

"I was able to call 911, call my husband and they said that when they came I was sitting on the porch with a towel wrapped around my face, calm," she said.

Police say Moore had been brutally beaten with a pipe and robbed.

She needed more than 100 stiches, had several broken bones and now has a titanium plate in her face.

"It's been hard, it's been hard you know just knowing that somebody invaded your privacy," said Moore.

Moore says knowing the person is still out there terrifies her.

"I'm always looking out of the window you know and I just don't trust people even some people I know," she said.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering an $11,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

All you have to do is call 215-546-TIPS (8477). All calls will remain anonymous.
