Texas woman, Nhung Truong, left paralyzed after thief body slams her and steals $4,300

Texas woman left paralyzed after thief body slams her and steals $4,300.

She dropped some of her personal items during the struggle with the man, footage shared by Houston police shows. The thief took off with one item before quickly returning, lifting Truong off the ground and ruthlessly slamming her into the pavement before he ran off with the money, police said.

Police believe he originally stole the wrong item.

The family said about $4,300 was stolen, KRIV reported. Texas woman could spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair after a robber slammed her to the ground and stole thousands of dollars in a caught-on-camera attack last month, according to police and reports.

Nhung Truong has been unable to use one of her legs since she was assaulted by a man on Feb. 13 after withdrawing the large sum of cash from a bank, according to relatives and Houston police.

A statement from the Houston Police Department on Friday said: "The complainant dropped her possessions on the ground, so the suspect grabbed what he thought was the envelope and began to run away when he realized he had the wrong envelope.

"The suspect then ran back to the complainant, picked her up, and body-slammed her onto the ground. The suspect grabbed the envelope containing the crash and then fled the location."

Truong is a single mother of three and came to the US from Vietnam. The victim’s mother explained her daughter has already had a tough life, losing her husband to liver cancer seven years ago, KRIV reported.

She needs constant care, including help to go to the bathroom.

Doctors reportedly said there is a 50% chance Truong will be able to walk again.

“If a miracle happens, then she can walk again,” daughter Van Duong told KRIV.

But even worse, Truong’s spinal cord was damaged in the attack and she is unable to use her left leg, she and her family told KHOU.

“They don’t know when my leg can walk again,” Truong said through her daughter.

“It’s not a big loss of the money,” her daughter Linh Duong told the station. “The big loss is her leg.”

According to figures from the Texas Department of Public Safety, there were 22,320 robberies in the Lone Star State in 2021, down from 26,750 in 2020. The change represents a drop of 16.6 percent.

The public safety department added that the crime rate for robberies was 75.6 for every 100,000 people in Texas in 2021, a fall of 17 percent from 2020.

Surveillance footage showed the robber body-slammed Truong at one point during the attack and left her on the ground.

According to Fox26, the attack left Truong with a damaged spinal cord and she is now paralyzed, unable to walk or use the bathroom alone.
