A 73-year-old woman is recovering after police say another woman stole her car and then ran her over with it in the parking lot at a church.
According to Bronx News , Lorraine Lombardo pulled into the church parking lot to drop off a clothing donation. They say that the engine was still running while Lombardo was out dropping off clothes. A 50 year old homeless woman, Doreen Dunbar, got into the vehicle. Lombardo grabbed the steering wheel in an attempt to prevent the car from being stolen. Dunbar allegedly put the car into reverse, and ran over Lombardo's legs as she drove off. She then crashed into a guard rail and fence.
Dunbar was arrested a short time later as police used a helicopter and K9 unit to find her. She was charged with assault and robbery. Lombardo is being treated for serious leg injuries and her loved ones are praying for a speedy recovery and for justice to be served.
Neighbor, Kathleen White heard all the commotion.
"There was a woman walking away and the woman on the ground was saying it was her car. The two were arguing whose car it was. So I said the police can figure out whose car it is. It's really sad that you're so desperate to have to take somebody else's car as they're doing a good deed." said White.
