Seconds later, the men purposely crashed into the SUV, forcing it to roll over near Thorne Stadium on Aldine Bender Rd., a few blocks away.

Meanwhile, a group of Aldine ISD police parked nearby witnessed the incident and started chasing the suspects.

The group tried to get away, but crashed on the Hardy Toll Road at Aldine Mail Route Rd.. Deputies and officers caught up with the attackers.

One suspect was apprehended at the scene. Two others escaped on foot.

The man’s wife was trapped in the overturned SUV and had to be rescued. She was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
