WMPD investigating brutal attempted car jacking

Posted: Updated:

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Last Wednesday night at about 10 o'clock the parking lot at Glenwood Regional Medical Center in West Monroe was the scene of a brutal fight for life.


The female victim told police it is was an attack she will never forget.

"He continued to approach her vehicle and stated to her that he had just been released from jail and to scoot over and he was going to take her car and she didn't let him," Detective Matt Graves of the West Monroe Police Department said.

There were no witnesses, and since there are no surveillance cameras in Glenwood's parking lot and no other businesses caught the attack on their cameras police only have the description from the victim to work with.
 
After the attack the suspect ran off and the woman went back into the hospital to find a security guard for help. Police say what happened is a good reminder to keep your eyes peeled for suspicious behavior and people.
