STOCKTON (CBS13) The hunt is on for the suspects behind a bizarre and brazen attack in Stockton. The dangerous weapon used was a pumpkin.
Police say the woman was pummeled by the pumpkin in a drive-by assault.
Remains of the pumpkin that the suspects threw at a woman can still be seen on the ground. Her injuries were so serious that she had to be rushed to the hospital.
It was a scary and frightening situation as the 51-year-old woman took a Thanksgiving stroll on Wilson Way near Roosevelt Street, only to be victimized during a senseless attack.
Its rude and immature, said one man.
Stockton police say the culprits hurled a pumpkin out of a fast moving car, and aimed it right at the woman. It hit her in the middle of the chest.
The injuries and the pain so severe, paramedics took her to the hospital. People who live and work in the area say, unfortunately, violence in the area isnt all that surprising.
Right here on Wilson Way, its the worst that Ive seen it, said the man.
Investigators are trying to figure out why, and who would do this on a day centered around being thankful.
Currently, investigators only know that whoever did this was in a white four-door vehicle. The good news is that the woman is out of the hospital and doing recovering well from her injuries.
When arrested, the suspects will face charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
So far, police are calling this a random attack
What we did was wrong. But society has changed greatly for the worse.
Boy that is one horribly written article.
Will someone please explain how a driving pumpkin can pummel someone? Heck how can a pumpkin drive?
Certain segments of the population think brutal assaults are a “game”.
yet another drive-by spooking
A big orange gourd can probably drive better, certainly more intelligently, than some of the dumbass people we have to share the roadways with today
Its The Attack of the Killer Pumpkins. (For you old movie buffs...)
This woman needs 24hr protection. This smells like a Sons of
Anarchy hit job. Thugs from Charming.
I avoid even driving down Wilson Way. I would never consider walking along that road, day or night. Not a nice area of Stockton. I live south of there about 20 miles but Stockton is the county seat and business often takes me there. Hope she will be all right.
"Investigators are trying to figure out why, and who would do this on a day centered around being thankful."
By someone who is not "thankful"?
I believe that Wilson Way is home to many hookers and meth users.
A drive-by pumpkining.
Among other undiresables, bad area.
So she got squashed???
Well, the driving pumpkin may be the reason she is “out of the hospital and doing recovering well from her injuries.”
If you are dumb enough to go walking in that area of Stockton after dark, you should expect some type of attack. This area is full of, or used to be full of, Mexican gangs.
It was a Great Pumpkin
