A single mother was left needing physical therapy and depending on the help of machines to help her get in and out of bed after a robber body slammed her to the ground.
It was reported that the woman visited her local Bank of America branch and withdrew approximately $4000. She had been saving the money to visit her family in Vietnam, whom she hadn’t seen in six years. The robber not only fleeced her of her opportunity to see her family but also rendered her unable to provide for herself, as she may never walk again.
The entire ordeal was caught on a security camera that was installed in the building. The video showed that the man grabbed the woman in an attempt to overpower her, but when her belongings fell to the ground, he let go and grabbed what he apparently thought was an envelope with money and ran.
However, he returned as the woman was trying to retrieve the things he had left on the floor, picked her up, and body-slammed her to the ground.
In conclusion, officers reported that the man had followed the woman for approximately 24 miles before he took the chance to rob her. The man of colour can be seen wearing a red sweatshirt and black shorts. His face, however, could not be identified.
