Thieves stole woman’s $75K bank withdrawal, ran her over: cops

Shocking video shows a pair of violent thieves running over a woman with a car and making off with her purse in Texas.

The unidentified victim had just made a $75,000 bank withdrawal and the savage muggers followed her to the Valero gas station she co-owns, Harris County Constable Precinct 4 Mark Herman said.

Security footage taken Friday shows the brunette woman, wearing patterned pants and an orange top, about to open the gas station door when a man jumps out of a vehicle pulling up and attempts to snatch her purse.

“The victim fought hard and refused to give up her purse containing the money,” Herman said.

The brave woman clutches her bag tightly by the handle as the robber drags her across the ground in an attempt to get it out of her hands. Eventually, the woman’s husband jumps out of the store to help but the thief pounds him with punches.

During the altercation, a black Chrysler 300 pulls up and a second thief jumps out to help his partner beat the couple. He then gets back into the car and backs up over the couple over as they lay on the ground.

The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition, Herman said.

Cops collared David Dowell Mitchell on charges of Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon and he is being held in Harris County Jail without bond.

They’re looking for the second perp, a man named Travonn Johnson who they suspect ran the couple over, Herman said on Saturday.
