Foley Teacher Attacked And Robbed

Posted: Updated:
FOLEY, Alabama -

Bruised, bloody, and barely able to speak, Patricia Givens talked to News 5 about a violent attack and robbery that sent her to the hospital.

"It felt like a freight train," says Givens. "I don't know what he hit me with, but when he did, I went down."

Givens was badly beaten and robbed outside Papa Murphy's Pizza on Highway 59 in Foley Sunday night.

Givens suffered a broken nose, facial fractures, a concussion and two broken fingers in the attack.

The suspect- described as a young man in his 20's, medium build and six feet tall- is still on the run.

"You must be pretty chicken to hit a Dad Gum 55 year old lady from behind," says the 8th grade middle school teacher.  "You could have come up to me and asked and I could have given you some money."
