HOMESTEAD (CBS4) – A Homestead woman is relieved to know the man who ran her over at a gas station while trying to take her purse has been arrested.
“Seriously, I cannot tell you how happy I am,” said Sara Delgado.
Delgado is still in pain, bandaged and bruised, but after weeks living in fear, she’s thankful police arrested John Croissy Thursday night.
“I just wanted that I wanted him to get caught, I didn’t want him to hurt anymore ladies any young people out there any teenagers, I mean, I was dragged by a car literally.
Croissy didn’t answer CBS4 reporter Maggie Newland’s questions after his arrest, but police said he talked to them, confessing to the crime and others.
Croissy faces several charges including armed robbery and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
Police said Croissy was working alone when Sara Delgado was run over.
However, they said Croissy and Michael Felix worked together to commit similar crimes including the theft of a purse at another gas station in Homestead on July 30th and a vehicle break-in in Pinecrest last Saturday.
Michael Felix also faces burglary and grand theft charges. A judge set bond for Felix at $10,000.
Croissy’s charges include armed robbery which is a non-bondable offense.
Police believe there are more victims out there who may be just as relieved as Sara Delgado.
“It’s not over, but I am at peace, I’m at peace because they caught this monster,” said Delgado.
Delgado says she’s still struggling with about $175,000 in medical bills after spending nearly a week in the hospital.
There is a fund set up to help with those bills at Power Financial Credit Union. The account number is for Sara H. Delgado #517704.
