Thief steals car with child

By Staff

A thief in Saudi Arabia waited for a car owner to nip out to the shop, jumped into the vehicle and drove away without realizing the little girl who was lying in the back seat. When she later sat up and asked him what he was doing, he simply told her to get out and drove away.

Police said they had mounted a manhunt for the thief after finding the 11- year-old girl in the middle of the road.

“A thief with half conscience,” the Arabic language daily said in a report from the eastern town of Hufuf.

“He let the girl out but did not give up the car…police are searching for the man on descriptions given by the girl.”
