Woman Says She was Brutally Attacked Over Tubes on the Guadalupe

By  | 


Floating down the Guadalupe River, in the Texas Hill Country, has always been a pastime reserved for fun summer weekends. Sadly, it didn’t end that way for Lindsey Rose, of Houston, who made the trip to New Braunfels with her family over the past weekend. Rose alleges she was brutally attacked after her tubing trip. As a result, authorities are searching for four suspects and asking those with information to please come forward.

Following their float on the Guadalupe River, Rose and her husband set their tubes down near Devil’s Playground. According to local media reports, Rose asserts that at approximately 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, 2019, a man and woman tried to take the family’s tubes. It’s reported that Rose was at the Lazy L & L campground when she saw them trying to abscond with the floats. “I was just like, ‘Hey, what’s going on? What are you doing? Are you taking our floats?'” she explained to KPRC-TV.

Allegedly, while Rose was talking to the woman, three other females attacked her from behind and knocked her out. The attack resulted in a broken nose, a deep gash to her forehead, two black eyes, and a number of bruises. Rose’s sister, Elizabeth, said that the incident happened so quickly, there was little time for her husband to assist, though he tried to get the women off his wife during the attack. She also said that her sister doesn’t recall much of the moments in which it happened. From there, she was rushed to a hospital in San Antonio.

The alleged suspects are reportedly described as one Hispanic male and three Hispanic women, who left the scene driving in a black Dodge Ram. They’re being sought for questioning. In the meantime, Rose is recovering. However, scars will remain, including the sheer trauma of the act. Those with possible tips or information about the matter are asked to contact the Comal County Sheriff’s office. If anyone witnessed the attack, they’re asked to provide further details. “Whether it’s your friend or family, please do the right thing because not only did it happen to me, it’s going to happen to someone else,” Rose told click2houston.com.
