A Stamford Hill family went through a frightening ordeal earlier this morning, when their car was carjacked. The incident occurred on Dunsmire Road, when a husband left his wife and elderly mother inside his car for a moment & ran into a grocery story to pick something up.
Within seconds, a person jumped into the drivers seat and sped off with the wife in the front seat screaming, and his elderly mother in the back seat. After a few blocks of erratic driving, the screaming woman was thrown from the moving vehicle by the driver.
After driving a bit longer, he apparently stopped and told the mother to exit the vehicle.
The police arrived, and along with Hatzolah, Shomrim, and Chaveirim units, an extensive search was formed to look for the vehicle and the driver.
The vehicle was located a while later – with the driver nowhere to be found.
Hatzolah treated the wife for minor injuries she received from being thrown from the vehicle, and transported to a hospital.
Besides for being scared and shaken up, the mother was Boruch Hashem not injured.
An intense police investigation is currently underway to hunt down the car-jacker.
