Woman almost carjacked while stopping for dummy in road, police say

A woman was almost carjacked as she stopped for a dummy she mistook for a child on a North Carolina road, deputies say.

According to WXII, the woman saw a figure in the middle of the road about 1:30 a.m. Sunday as she was driving in Carteret County, so she slowed down. That's when two men in hoodies grabbed the handles of her car doors, The Associated Press reported.

The woman quickly drove away and called authorities, who found a dummy dressed in a red shirt at the scene, deputies said. That dummy has been destroyed, the AP reported.

Authorities are still looking for the perpetrators.
