Lubbock Woman Beaten After Telling Suspects to Return Stolen Car
A Lubbock woman was assaulted by multiple suspects after she accused them of having stolen a car.
KAMC News reports that the victim was riding in the front passenger seat of a vehicle with 2 suspects. She thought that the vehicle was stolen, so she told those in the car that they needed to return it. That's when the driver pulled into the 1900 block of Avenue O, accusing the victim of taking their money and punching her multiple times. This all happened a bit before 3 p.m.
The suspect in the back seat is said to have struck the victim with a metal pipe while the other suspect pulled out a handgun and struck the victim in the head with it. A 3rd suspect attempted to pull the victim out of the vehicle and ended up stealing her phone, purse and shoes.
The victim, whose identity wasn't revealed, was taken to University Medical Center with swelling, bruising and marks on her right wrist and elbow as well as an open wound on the back of her head.
As of Wednesday, September 29th, the identities of the 3 suspects had not been revealed. Police have yet to make any arrests.
