HOUSTON -- Two deaf women were attacked outside their Alvin home early Thursday.
Officers with the Alvin Police Department told FOX 26 News that the two women were sitting outside their home in the 1600 block of Rice Street when three men dressed in black approached them.

The men attacked one of the women. Neighbors told police they saw the other woman trying to escape the man. She was able to get away without injury.

LifeFlight transported the woman who was attacked to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Her condition was not released but hospital officials said she could be released as early as Thursday night.

Alvin police said they do not have a motive for the attack or any suspects.

Detectives said they had difficult communicating with the women because they were using a slang-form of Spanish sign language.
