HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- A security guard south of Spring was nearly run over Thursday morning at the hospital where he works.

He was in the parking lot of the Kindred Hospital on Hollow Tree Lane.

Deputies were called there after the 66-year-old guard tried to help a nurse who was being confronted by a man she claimed was stalking her. It did not go well.

Detectives say the man punched the guard and then ran to his car. He did not leave quickly enough.

The guard was soon at his door, and wedged there, while the driver dragged him across the lot. At one point they nearly hit a fence.

Investigators say the guard will be OK, just as they are searching for the suspect who is now accused of attacking not one, but two people.
