SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say a woman’s significant other struck a man with his truck and then fled during a domestic altercation on the city’s West Side late Tuesday night.
Officers were called around 11:20 p.m. to the 9200 block of Westover Hills Boulevard, not far from Culebra Road and Grissom Road after receiving word of a person injured.
According to police, the 34-year-old male victim and a 28-year-old woman were seen together in a parking lot by a man she was said to be in a relationship with. That’s when, police say, he confronted her and then began to physically assault her.
Police said the victim came to the aid of the woman and that prevented the man from continuing to attack her.
A preliminary police report said the man stopped hitting the woman, but he then got into his vehicle and drove towards him, hitting him. He then fled the scene.
The report said officers were eventually able to locate his abandoned truck nearby. The man, however, has not been found.
The victim was taken by ambulance to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all responded to the call.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
