CNN — A robbery victim in Texas turns the tables on her attacker.
Police say a man armed with a knife hid inside the woman's van.
The mother fought back and nd sent the armed robber to the hospital.
A two-year-old boy was inside a van with his five-year-old sibling while their mother had just left a Baytown CVS, when police say Ismael Martinez, popped up in the back of the van.
He had a knife.
The father od the children says the mother told him she struggled with Martinez, honked the horn, and somehow called 911 while getting the knife.
Police say she ran her van intentionally off the road, trying to disorient the attacker, that she punched him in the face, and when she stopped, he then jumped out of the vehicle, before she then turned the tables and ran him over.
Back at the CVS where the mother had been shopping, folks are applauding her for doing what it took to protect her children.
