Rosalie Cook and Randy Lewis
The two white men who shot that jogger in self-defense were denied bond, but not this guy.
I guess the court didn’t think he’d be much of a threat to the public – after all, he’s only been arrested more than 67 times.
An elderly woman was fatally stabbed in a Walgreens parking lot Saturday by a career criminal who was out on bond.
80-year-old Rosalie Cook, who was widowed and lived on her own independently, had just picked up a prescription when the monster approached her in the parking lot and stabbed her in the chest.
“What makes me angry is this suspect stabbed an 80-year-old woman then goes down, rifles through her stuff and tries to steal her car,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said.
Randy Lewis, 38, was reportedly menacing people and begging for money at a nearby grocery store before the crime.
A responding officer arrived shortly after the stabbing and ordered Lewis out of Cook’s car. When Lewis attempted to rush the officer with the knife, he was shot twice, fatally.
“This is tragic, but the most tragedy here is that a woman has died from a guy who attacked her for no other reason other than to steal from her and carjack her,” Acevedo said.
Lewis had been arrested more than 67 times in his life.
