A Lubbock family wants to know who ran over their son and they're tripling the reward for information.
Joseph Menaldi remains in critical condition at University Medical Center with massive internal injuries. The 23-year-old was involved in an argument at the Depot District on July 21st. The other men involved apparently followed Menaldi to the 9700 Block of Norfolk. That's where a witness says one of the men pulled Menaldi through the window and dragged him for a block. He fell to the ground and was run over by a rear tire.
Police are now looking for the truck involved in this aggravated assault. It's a white late-model Ford Super Cab with 33-inch mud tires with a lift kit. The words "get er done" or "Cowboy Up" are on the front windshield. The word "sport" is written on the bed. Yellow run lights may be on top of the cab.
The suspect is described as a white man, 19 to 25 years old. He is 5'9" tall, weighs about 170 lbs and has a slender face and muscular arms. He was wearing a light colored cowboy hat, jeans and boots the night of July 21st.
If you've seen the vehicle or have any information, you're urged to call Crime Line at 741-1000. Menaldi's parents say they will triple the Crime Line reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of those responsible.
