VIDEO: Assault caught on camera outside Lufkin swimming pool
Can you help police identify these people?
Lufkin, TX (KETK) — Lufkin Police are looking for the people who assaulted two women outside of a Lufkin swimming pool in June.
It happened just before 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23rd at a neighborhood swimming pool on Champions Drive in Lufkin.
The gate at the pool remains locked to prevent unauthorized entry into the pool area.
Surveillance video shows two women and two children gathered their belongs to leave, but when they reached the gate, there were two young women and three young men trying to get inside.
The victims told the five individuals that they must be residents of the neighborhood in order to use the pool, and that the homeowner's association issues each resident a pool-gate key. The women refused to let the people in, not wanting to accept responsibility for their use of the pool if they were not residents.
As the women left the pool area, one of the people pulled on the gate to keep them from closing it.
A camera mounted at the gate captured video of the assailants grabbing and shoving one victim, and slapping the face of the other.
A brief fight ensued, during which one of the victims dropped her Motorola Atrix cell phone. She believes that one of the assailants left with it.
The attackers left the area in a silver Chevrolet car, with damage to its rear bumper.
