Terrifying Texas Carjacking
A recent carjacking incident in Fort Worth, Texas, has caused a mother and her children traumatized after a male suspect held them at gunpoint and stole their car. The incident occurred on February 10th in an apartment community in the 200 block of Bailey Avenue.
The mother was taking her children out of the car when the suspect approached and demanded her car. However, one of the woman’s children was still in the backseat, and she pleaded with the suspect to let her remove the child before he stole the vehicle. The suspect complied and allowed the mother to take her child out of the car before speeding away.
The Fort Worth Police Department responded quickly to the incident locating the stolen vehicle within minutes and initiating a pursuit. However, the suspect managed to evade officers and abandoned the vehicle in another apartment community in Haltom City. Police released surveillance footage of the suspect running out of the stolen car in the community’s parking lot, and they are asking anyone with information about the suspect to come forward.
