Thuggish couple ask victim if she ‘was ready’ before beating, dragging and robbing her

A woman told police that thug robbers slapped her, dragged her on concrete and then ran over her legs with a car during a harrowing heist at the Glen Park BART station on Saturday.

Around 7:35 p.m., the victim was waiting for the bus across from the station when one of the suspects, a woman in her 20s, “asked her if she was ready” before abruptly slapping her across the face, police said.

Then a male suspect crept up from behind the woman and tried to take her purse. She fought the theft. The suspect knocked her to the ground as she held onto the purse, police said, and she was dragged to the getaway car.

The victim said she would not let go of the purse even when one suspect said they should drive with her still holding on.

“The victim said the car started driving and ran over her legs,” police said.

However, a witness said the car never ran over the victim, but “she did see her on the ground and in shock,” police said. The thugs ultimately managed to get away with the purse.

The woman suffered lacerations to both legs, they said.

She refused medical attention.

Cops are hunting for the suspects, described as a black woman in her early 20s standing 5-feet-5 and weighing 120 pounds. The other suspect was described as a black man, 6-feet tall and 180 pounds, police said.

The car was a dark blue Oldsmobile, police said.
