An 88-year-old woman who was brutally assaulted by a carjacker has said she wants to ‘kill that son of a b****’ if they ever crossed paths again.
Gloria Kevelighan’s harsh words came the day after a man approached her from behind and grabbed her purse in a Walmart parking lot in Livonia, Michigan, on Tuesday.
When Kevelighan tried to fight the man off using her cane, he punched her in the head and slammed her into the pavement.
He and his accomplice then got into her car and drove off, nearly running her over.

I’d kill the son of a b**** Somebody thought 88-year-old Gloria Kevelighan was an easy target when he knocked her down and stole her car and purse. But if she sees him again…… http//bit.ly/2Npwqp3
Kevelighan was sporting severe bruises when she recounted the ‘traumatic’ attack on Wednesday, telling FOX2 ‘I tried to hit him with my cane but I couldn’t, he seemed to want to stay behind me so I couldn’t see his face.
‘I tried to turn around and sock him with my cane. If anyone bothers me, I use my cane.
‘He pushed me and I fell flat on my face. I hit my head, I was bleeding and everything.
‘The way he pushed me, he didn’t care. He was very strong.’
When asked what she would do if she ever came face-to-face with the man who attacker her again, Kevelighan said emphatically ‘I’d kill that son of a b****.’
