Thief Steals Car With Kids In It. Dad Takes Abandoned Stolen Car To Chase Him Down.

In Minneapolis, a suspect who allegedly stole a vehicle with four children inside was chased down by the children’s father, who hopped into a stolen vehicle the suspect abandoned at the scene.

Approximately 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) reported a suspect arriving in a stolen vehicle near the 800 block of Russel Avenue North. After jumping out of the stolen car, the driver got into another car, which had four children under five.

When his car was stolen, the children’s father jumped into the stolen vehicle left behind by the suspect. He pursued his own car and rear-ended it, police said.

After getting out of the car near Plymouth Avenue North and Penn Avenue North, the suspect fled on foot before police arrived, authorities said.

There were no injuries reported in the incident, according to police.

An investigation is ongoing, and the MPD has not confirmed whether any arrests have been made. Forensic investigators from the MPD processed and collected evidence from the scene.
