A Florida mother of two was not about to let her children become the victims of a gang of carjackers.
The troop of three initially tried to get into one vehicle outside a Hialeah convenience store but the woman locked herself in the car so they decided to try another — that was a big mistake, WSVN reported.
In the second hijack attempt, two kids were in the backseat of the car; when the mother of the two saw what was going on, she did not hesitate to spring into action.
She grabbed the man who was getting into the driver’s seat and literally threw him from her car.
“She was a mom, and what that bad guy didn’t know, in the back seat of that car were two kids,” Hialeah Police Department spokesman Carl Zogby told WSVN. “She wasn’t gonna let them be taken, so she fought, she dragged the guy out of the car and they both ran away like cowards.”
They didn’t get too far, though.
A nearby police officer saw the getaway car speeding off and gave chase.
“A Hialeah Police patrolman, who had no idea of what had just happened, sees the car speeding, follows the car. The car ends up crashing against a fence,” Zogby told WSVN.
The three suspects were arrested and have been charged with attempted carjacking and fleeing police.
