Carjacking this morning

Just over the West Hartford line, on Simsbury Road, a fellow this morning left his car running outside before going to work. He looked out and saw someone trying to steal it, according to The Hartford Courant. The guy ran out to try to stop the theft, struggled with the crook and wound up getting run over by his own car.

Fortunately, his injuries are apparently not life-threatening. The carjacker fled into the woods.  He’s described as a “tall, thin black male in his twenties. He was unshaved and wore grey sweats, a hooded sweat shirt over a green stocking cap and black sneakers.”

These things are scary.
