LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - Police are on the lookout for a woman accused of pushing a paraplegic out of a wheelchair and stomping on him. 

According to police reports, officers responded to Hospice Home Care on Bowman Road where a woman said her paraplegic son had been attacked at another home earlier that week, causing terminal injuries.

51-year old Robert Hepp told police that after 32-year old Katie Forte heard him talking about her, she pushed him out of his wheelchair and kicked him in the face.

The report states Forte continued to stomp on his lower body while he was on the ground.

Hepp said a witness helped him back into his chair, and then he stayed in bed until his mother took him to the hospital.

Police say Hepp's injuries are life threatening. 

The witness told police he didn't see the whole incident, but did see Forte punching Hepp while he was on the ground.

Police say Forte is considered a suspect in this case, but has not been located or charged.
