Woman fights off robber at Cowart Elementary

An Oak Cliff woman says she punched a masked man in the face Thursday morning after he robbed her.

From WFAA’s report:

[Michelle] Martinez made an early morning trip, walking across Wilton Avenue to Cowart Elementary School to deliver needed medication to her young son. As she left the classroom in a portable building on the north side of the school, a gray four-door Kia pulled up to the curb. The passenger got out, pulled a ski mask over his face, pointed a handgun in Martinez’s chest and demanded money.

The woman told the TV station that the robber took $200 and smashed her phone on the ground. When he tried to take her shoes, she says, she punched him. He sped away in the Kia with another person, she says.
