Attempted Murder Charge: Texas Woman Re-arrested After Alleged Drowning Incident

Court records show that a woman from Texas who was charged with trying to drown a 3-year-old child at an apartment complex pool in the suburbs of Dallas was arrested again after her bond was raised to $1 million. After being charged with attempted murder and injury to a child, Elizabeth Wolf, 42, was first freed on a $40,000 bail. The incident happened on May 19, and Wolf is said to have said racist things to the child’s mother before trying to drown the kid.

The police in Euless, a suburb of Dallas, said Wolf was “very drunk” at the time of the episode. Wolf told the child’s mother that she wasn’t American and made other racist comments, according to police. Wolf was arrested again after her bond was raised after a court meeting last week. Tarrant County records show that Wolf was still in jail in Fort Worth on Wednesday. Wolf’s lawyer did not answer right away when asked for comment.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) group in Texas was glad that Wolf was arrested again. Shaimaa Zayan, operations manager for CAIR-Austin, said, “CAIR-Texas will continue to fight for the family and the American Muslim community until justice, peace, and equity are achieved.” CAIR says that the mother of the children, who wears a hijab, said that she and her family are Palestinians who became American citizens. The mother’s name has not been made public by cops or CAIR.

The child’s mother told police that Wolf tried to grab her 6-year-old son after asking her where she was from and then grabbed her 3-year-old daughter and put her underwater. The mom got her daughter out of the pool while she was yelling for help and coughing up water. Both kids were checked out by doctors and given the all-clear.

Tarrant County prosecutors have been asked to treat the case as a hate crime by Euless cops. A spokesman for the office of the district attorney said that they are looking into the case. Capt. Brenda Alvarado of the Euless Police Department says that the event is being looked into as a hate crime. The case has been sent to the Tarrant County district attorney’s office to be filed, and the situation is still being looked into.

Police were told by witnesses that on May 19, a “very drunk” woman tried to drown a child and got into a fight with the child’s mother at the apartment complex pool. As Wolf tried to leave, police officers approached her and arrested her on suspicion of being drunk in public. Wolf asked the child’s mother where she was from and if the two kids playing at the pool were hers, the mother told the cops. CAIR-Texas says the mother is Muslim and Palestinian and wore a hijab and clothing that covered her skin.

Police say that Wolf also said racist things about the mother, like that she wasn’t American. Wolf tried to grab the mother’s 6-year-old son when she answered, but the boy pulled away, scratching his finger. Police said in a news release that Wolf grabbed the mother’s 3-year-old daughter and forced her to go under the water while she was helping her son. The mother pulled her daughter out of the water, but the child was still coughing up water and yelling for help.

In a statement, CAIR-Texas praised the move to re-arrest Wolf. “The family who was hurt and the American Muslim community are temporarily calmer now that the alleged attacker is back in custody.” “We thank local and federal police for setting him free again and making progress in the investigation,” said Shaimaa Zayan, Operations Manager for flipthemedia.

A record shows that Wolf has a court date set for October 17. People are still interested in the case because it shows how serious hate crimes and racial discrimination are in the United States. Advocacy and community groups like CAIR are keeping a close eye on the processes in the hopes of finding a solution that gives the family involved justice and peace.
