HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) —  A woman was forced to spend Mother’s Day recovering at Guam Regional Medical City after she attempted to stop a man from stealing her husband's pickup truck and had been run over in the process.

The robbery happened around 6 a.m. Sunday in front of a residence along West San Antonio in Dededo.

Family members told The Guam Daily Post their father was getting ready to go to work and left the pickup's engine running in front of the home before briefly going back inside.

His wife then noticed a stranger inside the truck attempting to leave. Investigators said the woman grabbed onto the truck’s front driver side door to try and stop him. The suspect continued to drive away, forcing the woman to fall to the ground. Police said the suspect also ran her over.
