Car thief gets unexpected surprise

When a man was fueling up his vehicle at a gas station, a carjacker saw an opportunity.

But with a child sitting in the SUV’s back seat, the burglar got more than he bargained for.

Police are looking for the man who stole the black Kia SUV around 7:30 p.m. at Sunoco, 7801 W. Sample Road in Coral Springs.

The owner tried to “jump on the hood of the car to stop the man from driving away,” said Capt. Brad McKeone.

Shortly after taking off, the robber noticed a 6-year-old girl riding in the back. He stopped about two miles away from the gas station and let the child out of the car, McKeone said.

“The child was spotted by a jogger, who called police,” he said.
