BENSALEM (AP) — A woman accused of running over her younger sister after a disagreement over a trip to the mall has been charged with aggravated assault, police said.
Redah Raza, 20, was critically injured after a van driven by her sister, Anum, 24, drove over her Thursday, authorities said. Redah had wanted a ride to the mall, but Anum Raza refused to take her because she had to go to work, according to court documents.
As Anum Raza backed out of the driveway, Redah stood in front of the vehicle to try to stop her. Anum Raza said she “inched” forward to get her sister to move, but Raza jumped on the hood, police said. Anum Raza then accelerated to about 30 mph before she braked about five or six houses away, and her sister fell off the hood, police said. Anum Raza then tried to park to check on her sister but instead drove over her, police said. In addition to aggravated assault, Anum Raza is also charged with recklessly endangering another person. She was released on $250,000 bail.
