(KPRC) A woman who withdrew $75,000 from a Houston, Texas bank was assaulted and run over by a robbery suspect’s vehicle during an attempted robbery Friday morning.

Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables said the woman, who runs a check cashing business with her husband, withdrew the money and was followed by suspects who planned to steal the money from her purse. 

“These criminals out there, they are watching and they are looking for easy targets,” Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said.

A deputy constable on patrol spotted the two suspects wrestling with the woman for her purse in the parking lot, officials said. When the suspects saw the deputy constable, one jumped into a black Chrysler 300 and backed over the woman, officials said.
