SAN ANTONIO – A woman was injured after she tried to stop an alleged burglar from fleeing in a U-Haul van on the Southwest Side, according to San Antonio police.
The incident happened around noon Friday in a shopping center in the 300 block of Valley Hi Drive near Loop 410.
According to police, a witness saw a man walk into a store and steal items before getting into the passenger’s side door of a U-Haul van.
As the van started to drive off, the woman went to the passenger’s side door to try to stop the man from stealing, police said.
The 56-year-old woman fell from the side of the van and suffered injuries to her torso and lower extremities. She was taken to University Hospital in unknown condition.
