Passers-by drag carjacker out of car he tried to steal from a terrified family – and hold him until cops arrive
Oh no you didn’t:
A would-be carjacker got a taste of street justice when he tried to steal a vehicle with a woman and child inside, after a group of passers-by rushed to her aid, dragging him away and holding him down until the police arrived.
Ismael Hernandez, 21, is accused of getting into the car in a San Diego shoppers car park and attempting to drive off with the owner and her child still inside before crashing into a pole.
Video of the incident shows a group of men standing around the car hauling Hernandez out of the driver’s seat and grabbing hold of the keys.
And then, they held him until the police got there:
Moments later a police officer arrives and the passers-by assist him by holding Hernandez down while he is cuffed.
Once in the relative safety of police custody the man proceeds to argue with some of the bystanders who continue to film the incident.
Eventually more officers arrive and the man is bundled into the back of police car.
Nice work, folks. You make me proud.
