LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) — Video released by police Friday night shows a man violently throwing a woman out of a minivan before stealing the vehicle at a Littleton car wash.
According to the Littleton Police Department, the carjacking occurred about 12:15 p.m. Thursday at the Atlantic Car Wash, which is located at 5474 S. Federal Cir.
“The male suspect grabbed the victim’s arm and yelled for her to get out of the car. She resisted and attempted to fight off the suspect. Ultimately the suspect grabbed the victim by the neck, bit her, then forcibly pulled her from the vehicle and threw her to the ground,” LPD said in a statement.
Video shows the suspect then driving away in the woman’s minivan.
The victim is a 63-year-old woman. Police say that when she put her Toyota Sienna in “park” in the car wash bay, the doors automatically unlocked.
