SHELBYVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The hunt is on for a man accused of beating and robbing a woman in Shelby County. Two of his co-defendants are already in custody.

Shelbyville Police need help to locate Geremiah Woods, 21. He's accused of attacking a mother of two, a woman police say was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"I felt like I was suppose to die," said Amy Douglas. "I really did."

Douglas feels lucky to be alive after what happened back on March 12. Around 11 p.m. that night, Douglas was driving home when by chance she saw an old friend walking on the side of the road. That friend asked her for a ride. Douglas agreed and headed for an apartment complex on Berea Street. Shelbyville Police Detective Jesse Paulley says neither woman expected what happened next. 

"I think they got word that this girl was coming up there and as soon as they pulled in, they went towards to the vehicle to rob them," said Paulley. 

Police say Woods, Lamont Washington, and pulled out guns and ran up to Douglas' minivan.

"They held the gun and was like 'give me this, give me that' and I was like 'I don't have anything' and then he was like bam, like this, straight two times in my forehead," said Douglas. 

Douglas remembers being hit at least four times with two different pistols. Her friend in the passenger seat was being held by Woods.

"He had his arms around her neck and a gun to her head telling her not to move," said Paulley. 

The other woman was not injured. Douglas said her friend knew of one of the suspects.

"Honestly I feel like they wanted to take the van or something," said Douglas. "Just straight knock me out cold and it wasn't working. I had a waterfall of blood just pouring down my face. I mean I was wiping my eyes like this, I couldn't see."

Douglas said she was sitting on her iPhone, but the men never found it. They eventually gave up and ran away. 

"Surely, there is just like substance or something going on with them for them to even get that far to want to hurt somebody that bad, you know," said Douglas. "It doesn't make sense."

Washington and Thompson are already in the Shelby County Detention Center. Woods is considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information about his whereabouts, you are asked to call Shelbyville Police at 502-633-2326.
