Now, investigators are searching for an 18-year-old man accused of running over the veteran with his vehicle.
“He committed a very serious felony,” Det. Seth Tyler, with the Chandler Police Department, said. “He caused serious, life-threatening injuries to someone who was trying to help.”
Investigators say Steven Richardson, a veteran who served two tours in Iraq, was in the parking lot of a Jack in the Box when he saw a woman being abused.
Witnesses described the attack as “very violent” and while several people told 18-year-old Cody Gibson to stop, Richardson was the only one who got physically involved.
