Trae Tha Truth made a public appeal to find an elder woman who was robbed in an armed attack.
Dubbed Houston’s Hometown Hero, Trae Tha Truth has a history of fighting for social justice in his community. When he saw a video of an unidentified woman being attacked, he sprang into action using his platform to track down the woman.
In the clip, an elder woman is seen walking on a path approaching a property when an armed gunman jumps out of a car alongside her. He runs up to her, and she immediately throws everything she has in her arms at him in surrender and begins pleading with him. He then grabs on to her while she tells him she has no money, directing him to her discarded items on the floor, including her purse. The attacker gathers her belongings before running back into the car and speeding off.
Trae shared the video with a request for his followers to put him in touch with the woman.
“Maan… This S### Aint Cool At All, Women And Kids Dont Go…. What if this was one Of Our Momma Or Grandma,” Trae question in the caption. “Real Ones Cant Cosign This… Yall Get Me Her Info…… This Aint The Code At All….. Yall Get Me To Her…”
