RICHMOND, Texas (KTRK) -- The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance photos of men investigators described as "cowards."
Three suspects are wanted for throwing a 67-year-old woman to the ground and cracking two of her ribs. Detectives said it all started with them stealing a 12 pack of beer.
We first introduced you to Doris Crowder last night on Eyewitness News. She works at the Murphy USA gas station off Bellaire Boulevard near the Grand Parkway. She was working as a clerk the night of the attack.
Crowder said the men grew angry after she tried to write down their license plate number. Detective Justin White works in the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office robbery division. He is helping to identify the men.
"Personally I think they're cowards to attack an elderly female in the way that they did," said Detective White. "It would have been very easy of them to exit the store. Get in their vehicle with the items that they had taken and left with a simple theft charge. To go one step further and to shove her to the ground in the vicious manner that they did, I think is repulsive and cowardly."
If you can provide information leading up to the men's arrest, you could earn yourself a 5,000 dollar reward. Call Fort Bend Crime Stoppers at 281-342-8477.
