(Scroll down for video) A man was left near death after two women ran him over with a car for Jay-Z tickets, according to police reports in Texas.
Houston Police said that a local man trying to sell concert tickets was assaulted, run over with a car and permanently disfigured by a couple of women, who had a child with them.
Police said that tracking down the two women was very easy as police matched the ticket numbers to the women occupying the seats.
The victim had eight tickets to sell for a concert at the Toyota Center. He advertised the sale on Craigslist.
The man met with the two potential buyers, Denitra Sherrelle Green and Cessica Darden, outside a Starbucks located in the 1800 block of Durham.
When the man approached their car, the couple snatched the tickets from his hand. Green drove off with the man still clinging to the vehicle. Darden’s child was in the back seat.
Darden began kicking the man and he fell off of the moving car, suffering a broken leg, left arm, right hand, and left knee.
Witnesses were able to record the license plate number of the vehicle. The victim was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
The victim required plastic surgery and his fingers will probably be of limited use in his right hand. He will also have trouble walking.
Police arrived at the concert and found Green and Darden sitting in seats that were in the stolen tickets. They were subsequently arrested.
Both women have admitted to driving with the man hanging onto the vehicle, and they showed no remorse when shown pictures of his injuries.
Green and Darden have both been charged with aggravated robbery.
