BAYTOWN, TX (KTRK) — A woman robbed at knifepoint in Baytown fought back, running over her attacker with her car on Friday. It was a terrifying ordeal for a woman and her children when an armed man suddenly appeared in her back seat.

What happened next ended with the suspect having to be flown to a hospital. The woman’s husband tells Eyewitness News she was trying to hit a telephone pole in order to disorient the attacker. He apparently jumped form the van and the woman ran over him.

Police say inside the minivan were a two-year-old boy and his five-year-old sibling. Their mother, Dorothy Baker-Flugence, had just left a Baytown CVS, police say, when Ismael Martinez popped up in the back of the van. He had a knife.
