4-Year-Old Child Calls Mother While In Stolen Car With Carjacker
A 4-year-old child in Tennessee was found safe on Tuesday after his father’s car was stolen with him still inside.
The boy’s father drove to Dodge’s Chicken in Memphis, Tennessee at around midnight on Tuesday and left the child inside the car while he went in.
An unknown man took the car and drove off with the boy still inside.
While the 4-year-old was in the car with the unknown man, he used his father’s phone to call his mother, according to the report.
“He called and he kept telling me that some dude was driving his daddy’s car,” the mother said.
The carjacker then snatched the phone away from the child and said he was taking the child back to his father, then hit the child in the head.
“The dude got on the phone and was like ‘Um, somebody stole the car. I’m going to take him back to his daddy,'” she said.
The child told his mother that the carjacker was wearing a black mask and a blue shirt.
“He told me that the dude in the blue shirt had his daddy’s car. I said, ‘What else is he wearing?’ He answered, “a black mask,'” she said.
The car was left about a mile away from Dodge’s Chicken with the child inside honking the horn until police found him.
The father was issued a citation for leaving the child unattended in the car.
