Man Wanted for Allegedly Smashing Rock into Face of Elderly Woman in Robbery
Federal Way Police are asking for your help to identify this assault suspect who smashed a 63-year-old woman in the face with a rock while trying to steal her purse.
“Yo dije el me va matar el, me va matar,” Laura Munoz said. She says the only thing going through her head was ‘he’s going to kill me; he’s going to kill me.’
Munoz works two jobs. The attack happened at 10:45 A.M. on April 15th at the bus stop she’s been using for five years to get to one of the jobs.
She says this is the first time in 20 years of using public transportation that she’s ever feared for her life.
Officers say he followed her off the bus at the Federal Way Transit Center and called her several racial slurs as he demanded that she give him her purse. When she refused, he threw a large rock at her face knocking out two molars and cutting her cheek. Her teeth and the rock were later recovered at the scene.
The aftermath of the attack was visible on her face. She had to get four stitches inside her mouth and two on her cheek, one molar broke and several of her teeth are still shifting.
With tears in her eyes, the grandmother says she’s terrified to ride the bus after she was attacked.
She’s sharing her story in hopes the terrifying moments she lived through won’t happen to someone else.
She says her greatest concern is knowing this man didn’t have compassion for her, an older woman, which makes her fear what else he could be capable of.
“Tengo terror,” Munoz said.
Munoz says she’s terrified of riding the bus again. The rise in crime is pushing her to warn others to be wary of who’s around them.
She still has medical treatment pending.
The suspect was carrying a green backpack.
