The women heard a knock at the door and the daughter answered.
Police say a short and heavyset man forced his way in and demanded money for lawn work. The woman's mother said she had not had any work done to her yard, according to the report.
The man then rummaged through the home before assaulting both women, the report states.
The mother was cut on her face, head and arms and was stabbed in her back. The woman's daughter was cut on her face and hands, according to the report.
