Officers from Richmond Station responded to an attempted carjacking at a grocery store. 

Officers arrived on the scene and met with the 75-year-old female victim who was suffering from injuries sustained during the incident. Officers called medics who treated her for non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim told officers she drove into the store’s parking lot. After parking her car an unknown female approached her and asked to borrow her cell phone to call a family member. The victim handed the female her cell phone and was suddenly attacked by the female and two additional suspects.

The victim was assaulted and dragged while being robbed of her wallet and keys. After obtaining the victim’s keys, the suspects jumped into the victim’s car. A male bystander saw the commotion in the parking lot and came to the victim’s aid.

The suspects then backed the car into the bystander while trying to steal the car. The bystander hit the rear window of the victim’s car with his bare hand. The window shattered upon impact. The bystander sustained a non-life-threatening injury.

When the rear window shattered, the suspects exited the car and jumped into an awaiting vehicle and fled the scene.
