Crook steals car by booting 13-year-old boy as he waited inside vehicle for family member
An opportunistic carjacker was caught on video yanking a teenager out of an idling car as the boy waited for a relative outside a Queens home, cops said Wednesday.
Police released footage of the Feb. 21 crime, which shows the suspect, wearing a purple hoodie, walk up to the car just before 3 p.m.
The car was left running on the corner of 127th St. and 111th in South Ozone Park, with a 13-year-old boy waiting inside.
The robber chatted up the teen, then pulled open the driver’s side door, forced him out onto the street, and hopped behind the wheel, cops said.
The lowlife was caught on video stealing the car.
The crook then drove off, leaving the teen dazed but unhurt.
Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
