A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
A Toledo woman says she was robbed and
then run over by two people she knew after they gave her a ride to pick up her prescriptions.
Monroe Police say the victim, who is
43-years-old, asked the two acquaintances for a ride to pick up her prescriptions
just before noon Wednesday. Once she had the pills, the two assaulted the woman
inside the car, took the pills and pulled her out of the vehicle.
The woman then stood in front of the
car pleading with the suspects to return her medicine, police say. Police say that is when the driver
hit the gas, causing the woman to flip over the car and land on her side.
The woman was transported to a nearby
hospital with a broken collar bone, broken ribs and several lacerations and
contusions. She is listed in stable condition. Police say the whole scene
unfolded on East Front Street near I-75 in Monroe.
The suspects fled the scene in a black
sedan. Police have not made any arrests in the case.
