Investigators believe these same two men may be involved in a similar case when one of them actually fired that shotgun, hitting a woman in the foot before she was able to drive away.
It was at the intersection of Campus Drive and Seminary Drive when the suspects successfully stopped a 21-year-old woman and took her to a nearby parking lot.
The surveillance video shows the robbery taking place. Police say minutes earlier one suspect pointed his shotgun at the woman as the other forced his way into her car and drove to the parking lot. The men demanded cash, credit cards, and the woman’s phone, all as she listened to their plans for her.
“During the offense the suspects discussed among themselves assaulting the victim,” Fort Worth Detective Brian Raynsford said.
In the end the suspects left without hurting the woman, but three days later in Forest Hill, investigators believe these same men shot another woman. She managed to drive away until she could find police.READ MORE: Dallas Police Searching For Man Who Shot 2 Victims After Argument On Royal Lane
“In both cases women were stopped at intersections, and occupants of a car in front of the victims approached both times with what’s described as a shotgun,” Raynsford said.
The descriptions of both suspects are too vague to provide any specifics, but their car is a dark-colored, older model sedan with tinted windows. Police warn everyone to be cautious if they’re confronted by suspicious drivers, especially late at night.
“If someone believes that they’re being followed, we recommend that they try to get to the nearest lit area, lead them to a police station, call 911, tell them what you think is occurring,” Raynsford said.
Forest Hill police tell us the victim from Friday was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
