ABBEVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Two men face criminal charges after a Dothan woman was injured while the suspects allegedly tried to steal a boat trailer.

Mason Cole Battles and Judson Walton Buchanan are charged with attempted murder and first-degree robbery. The Dothan Eagle (http://bit.ly/1qmPM8I ) reports that a judge ordered the men held on $130,000 bond for each count.

Police say the men tried to steal a boat trailer at a campground near Lake Eufaula early Sunday morning. Investigators say the woman was run over as she tried to stop the men from hitching the boat trailer to a golf cart.

Henry County Sheriff Will Maddox said the woman remains hospitalized and needs additional surgery.

It was unclear Tuesday whether Battles and Buchanan had defense attorneys.
