Cops: Teens get ‘tired of walking,’ commit violent DeKalb carjacking

The suspects told police they took the car because they were tired of walking.

A woman was carjacked and dragged under her car last week in DeKalb County after two teenagers got “tired of walking.”

The woman was vacuuming the car around 5 p.m. Wednesday at a car wash on Memorial Drive outside Stone Mountain when the teens approached, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The woman said the suspects — one 15, the other 16 — took the car as one of them kicked her in the face.

Surveillance video obtained by the news station shows the woman, who asked not to be identified, beneath the car as it drove away.

She said her head was nearly run over.

“With grace I had enough instinct to roll over and get out of the way,” the woman said. “My head probably would have been smushed under the tire.”

Police found the suspects after a brief chase. They told officers they took the car because they were “tired of walking,” Channel 2 said.

The woman is badly bruised from the incident but is thankful it wasn’t worse.

“I could have been gone that day,” she said.
