Johnson reportedly said instead of buying cookies, the man grabbed the group's cash box and ran into the car to drive away. Johnson says she grabbed onto the car and her friend ran to help.
"Me and my friend, Rachel, went after the money and then they tried to hit me with the car. I started hitting the boy that was in the passenger seat, so I think he learned his lesson a little bit," Girl Scout Iravia Cotton said, reports KHOU. "And then they dragged my friend Rachel across the street driving off real fast."
The suspects, who were driving a black Toyota Camry, managed to escape with an estimated $200, KHOU reports. They remain on the loose.
Johnson, who sustained minor bumps and bruises, had a message for the cookie thieves.
"Who steals from a Girl Scout? I mean, seriously, it's like the worst thing ever," she reportedly said. "I hope your face hurts from when Iravia punched you -- jerks!"
Donations have poured in, more than making up for the lost cash.
