Watch full Video: Houston Woman Body-Slammed During Attack

Two teens have been arrested and charged in connection to the caught-on-camera “jugging” of a Houston woman who was left paralyzed as a result of the violent robbery of cash that she had withdrawn from a bank.

The arrests of Joseph Harrell, 17, and Zy’Nika Ayesha Woods, 19, were announced at a press conference Friday, more than a month after Nhung Truong was brutalized the day before Valentine’s Day.

Surveillance video showed a Black male suspect wearing a red, white and black sweatshirt with an Air Jordan “Jumpman” logo, dark shorts and sneakers grab Truong, who had withdrawn an estimated $4,300 in cash from a Bank of America for a planned trip to see family in Vietnam.

Police said Harrell and Woods followed the mother of three from the bank to a nearby business by car.

KTRK reported that Harrell was out on bond at the time of the attack for two charges and that he is also accused of the aggravated assault of another woman 12 days after Truong was hurt. Woods is being held on a $50,000 bond, while bond has not yet been set for Harrell, according to the outlet.

A GoFundMe account set up by Truong’s family raised more than $263,000 by Monday.
