Two teens have been arrested and charged in connection to the shocking caught-on-camera “jugging” of a Houston woman left paralyzed from the violent robbery of cash she had withdrawn from the bank.
The arrests of Joseph Harrell, 17, and Zy’Nika Ayesha Woods, 19, were announced at a press conference Friday, more than a month after Nhung Truong was brutalized the day before Valentine’s Day.
“I just want people to know,if you are foolish enough to commit these types of crimes, we will find you,” Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, a Democrat, added. “It may take a few days. It may take a few weeks. But we will find you, and we’ll get you off the streets. Then I will trust the other parts of our system, criminal justice system, to make sure that they remain off the streets, so it doesn’t happen to somebody else.”
Fox News Digital also reached out to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office for comment.
KTRK reported that Harrell was out on bond at the time of the attack for two charges and that he is also accused of the aggravated assault of another woman 12 days after Truong was hurt. Woods is being held on a $50,000 bond, while bond has not yet been set for Harrell, according to the outlet.
A GoFundMe account set up by Truong’s family raised more than $263,000 by Monday.
Her daughter wrote that Truong, who suffered a spinal cord injury, was finally discharged from the hospital Friday as what is expected to be a years-long recovery process continues.
