While a woman fought off a cellphone thief at a gas station near the Georgia Dome, three men stole her car.
Surveillance video obtained by Channel 2 Action News from a Northside Drive gas station shows Emma Ebosi wrestling with another woman over a cellphone Sunday.
“I was walking to my car; she just attacked me from behind and we kind of fought over my phone,” Ebosi told Channel 2.
When Ebosi dropped her car keys during the struggle, a group of men grabbed her keys.
Officers believe the car theft was a crime of opportunity and not connected to the cellphone theft.
The three men grabbed the keys to her 2007 Saturn Vue and drove away. Ebosi’s car had a Michigan tag at the time of the theft, police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Bender told Channel 2.
All four suspects got away.
“This makes me question everyone now because anything can really happen,” Ebosi told Channel 2.
