FROM THE CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE DEPARTMENT -

Occurred on 7/17/12, 02:25 am  Aggravated Assault     4201 McArdle

Officers responded to Molly's Irish Pub for a hit and run accident involving a pedestrian.  The 34-year-old man told Police, he was trying to break up a fight between two groups of sisters who had been asked to leave the pub. The women began yelling and screaming at one another as one group of sisters drove off.  A fight ensued between the occupants of the car and the other group of sisters still in the parking lot.  

When the victim tried to break up the fight, the driver reversed her vehicle and ran over his foot and ankle.  The driver also hit a parked Chevrolet Avalanche pick-up truck as they fled in a black Nissan passenger car.  The suspect vehicle returned, but fled yet again.  The owner of the Avalanche followed the suspects and obtained a license plate number.  The victim was taken to Spohn Memorial.

Officers talked to the two other women assaulted and one of them told Police she was knocked to the ground by the vehicle.  This victim complained of pain to her ankle and left knee, but refused to be taken to Spohn Memorial by CCFD Emergency Personnel to the hospital, seeking her own transportation.  The other female did not have any visible injuries.

The suspects were known to the women and their information provided to Officers.  Both women, 29 and 36 years of age appear to have an Alice, TX address.  The investigation will continue and the women are facing Aggravated Assault, two counts of Assaults, and Reckless Damage or Destruction charges.
