A woman robbed at gunpoint in Cockrell Hill city Monday night says she thinks her muggers could be the same ones responsible for a string of student robberies.
Lissa Ramirez told KTVT that four men in a car pulled up as she was heading home at about 8 p.m. and demanded her cellphone and password. She says one of the men threatened to shoot her and kill her multiple times.
After they stole her phone, credit card and backpack, one of the men told her to run.
“He was like, ‘Just start running a little bit, and I’ll think about not shooting you,’ ” Ramirez told the TV station.
Ramirez says she thinks the robbers might’ve targeted her thinking she was a student because she is 4-foot-11 and was carrying a backpack; the crime happened about a mile from two similar robberies of students at L.V. Stockard Middle School.
