Mother Robbed At Knife Point

Woman, Daughter Approached By 2 Strange Men

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville mother is thankful that she and her 7-month-old daughter are still alive.

Police said Felisha Groover and her 7-month-old daughter were attacked by two men as they sat playing together in a car at an MRI clinic on University Boulevard.

Groover said she was waiting for her other daughter to come out of the clinic when the attack happened Monday afternoon.

"He was like, 'I ain't playing with you,'" Groover said of one attacker. "'Give me your purse or your fixing to die.' He was like, 'I'll take your baby. I'll take your little heifer out of the seat.'"

Groover said one of the men pulled her from her car, but thankfully her daughter was in the passenger seat and the man couldn't get to her. Groover said she was punched in the face during the attack and had to get stitches in her lip.

Groover said she thinks the two men were watching her before they struck because it was the middle of the afternoon along a busy street.

Groover told Channel 4 that she is working with police to identify a suspect. Anyone with information on the attack should call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
