‘He must didn’t know where he was’: Teen Carjacks Grandmother on Her Way to Chemo, Ends up in Ambulance

A teen in Washington, D.C., was taken away in an ambulance Friday after allegedly trying to carjack a grandmother who was on her way to chemotherapy.

According to ABC 7, the incident happened in a 22nd Street Southeast neighborhood, when the suspect, identified only as a 15-year-old male, told the victim to hand over the keys while threatening that he had a gun.

“Next thing I know, he walked up talking about, ‘give me your keys, I got a gun.’ I said, ‘baby, you better shoot me, because you’re not taking my car,’” the victim said.

The victim said she yelled for help and neighbors came to her protection.

“They all came out to help me,” she said. “They caught him and I said, ‘oh, you going to jail today. You definitely going to jail, yes you are.”

“He pushed me to the door and I got up and I grabbed him and was hitting his ass, and hitting him and fighting him and I said, ‘you not going to take my car, youngin,”” she continued, according to 97X

According to police, the defendant was taken from the scene by ambulance. He was then taken to jail and is now facing charges.

“And they said it’s a wonder he wasn’t dead,” the victim said. “On 22nd Street? He must didn’t know where he was. Nobody has seen this boy before.”
