A mother and father are accused of robbing and dragging a woman down the road at least 100 feet in Estill County.
A woman says she became the victim of a crime when she thought the couple was giving her a ride, but instead was robbed and dragged down the road by them.
Recovered from road rash, the victim, who doesn’t want to be identified, says she thought Chad and Rachel Crouch were going to give her a ride, but instead…
“She just grabbed my hand with the money in it,” she said. “She said, go, go, floor it.”
The victim says she was dragged at least 100 feet down Little Buck Creek Road.
She says there were two small children in the back seat of the car, that she believed to the Crouch’s.
“They were little,” the woman said.
But that didn’t stop the couple from robbing the woman.
“She just grabbed my hand with the money in it and dragged me down the gravel road,” she said. “She had a hold of my wrist until she could get the money out of my hand, then she let me go,”
“Neither one of them cared that they dragged me or whatever, they kept on going.”
The area is isolated, so the victim says she called for help herself. Police caught up with the couple in Bath County. They’re charged with robbery first degree, wanton endangerment and endangering the welfare of a minor.
“I don’t understand how anybody could do that,” the woman said
