Mom pins down man trying to steal her SUV
NEW YORK (AP) — A mother taking her child to school says she stopped a man from stealing her car and held him down until New York City police arrived.
Tihisha Jones says she started her car with an automatic car starter before leaving her Bronx apartment Tuesday when her son saw a man in the SUV that she calls “Black Beauty.”
Jones recounted she pulled the man out and dragged him to the ground, as per WNBC-TV on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Jones noted, “he’s lucky I didn’t kill him.”
She stated she was running on adrenaline and all she was worried about was her vehicle, which had been broken into twice before.
