Man Steals Car with Kids Inside is Fatally Beaten by Father & Others

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a man who stole a car with three young children inside was fatally beaten by their father and other men.

Philadelphia police say the car was parked at a pizza restaurant with its engine running when the man drove off around 9:15 p.m. Thursday. The children’s mother was inside the restaurant, talking with the father of two of the kids.

The vehicle soon got stuck in traffic, and authorities say the couple pulled the 54-year-old man out of the vehicle. The man ran off but was caught by the father. A fight ensued, with other men joining in.

The man was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital, where he died.

No charges have been filed. The children, who range in age from 7 months to 5 years, were unhurt.

The vehicle, a Hyundai sedan, was parked outside a North Philadelphia pizza parlor with the engine still running Thursday when a man sped off with it around 9 p.m., according to authorities. The 25-year-old car owner was inside the restaurant at the time, where her 25-year-old boyfriend, who is also the father of her children, is an employee.

The 54-year-old suspect was able to drive about half a block before he became ensnared in traffic, which allowed the couple a chance to catch up with him and force him out of the vehicle, NBC 10 reported.

The car thief then fled on foot, but the father again caught up with him and started throwing punches and kicks. Other men joined in on the fight and eventually, the suspect was knocked on unconscious.
