Woman arrested, charged in attempted hijacking

HUDSON OAKS — A woman accused of being the getaway driver in an attempted 18-wheeler hijacking in February in Hudson Oaks was arrested Thursday on a warrant for robbery.

Alysa Sorae Price, 24, of Fort Worth, was arrested Thursday morning on the robbery charge and released on $20,000 bond.

Shortly before 9 p.m. Feb. 11, the driver of an 18-wheeler parked in the far end of the Walmart parking lot noticed a man in a black hooded sweatshirt climb onto the step of his truck and attempt to open the door, Hudson Oaks Police Chief Brandon Mayberry said.

When the man realized the door was locked, he pointed a black handgun through the closed window, Mayberry said.  

The driver then began driving off and the man jumped off the side of the 18-wheeler, Mayberry said.  

Security footage revealed the man in the hooded sweatshirt left in a vehicle and the license plates returned to Price, who they interviewed, according to Mayberry.  

Price was reportedly the getaway driver for the attempted hijacking, Mayberry said.

The gun, which turned out to be a BB gun, was recovered, and a warrant has been issued for the man, according to Mayberry.

“It was a pretty crazy situation,” Mayberry said.
