(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested and charged with theft related charges after she carjacked a pickup truck despite being with her two little children, according to police reports in Georgia.
Police said that the woman with her two young children stole the truck from a Chevron gas station in Marietta.
Police identified the suspect as Nicole Evans.
Just the day before, authorities said Evans tried to carjack a taxi driver near South Marietta Parkway Loop.
The driver, Danny Kim, said that it started out as a normal fare in the bus station in Cobb County. However, when he put the stroller in the trunk of his taxi, Evans climbed into the driver’s seat and tried to take off with his vehicle.
“She was like, ‘I have to go, I have to go. Let me, let me go.’ I put my hand there. I tried to get the keys,” Kim said.
Kim said that Evans fought until another taxi driver jumped into the car to help wrestle away the keys.
“My friend was blocking the door. She jumped out the window and she left,” he said.
Evans had two young children in tow, the driver said.
“She was dragging them like a bag of stuff,” he said.
Evans went to the other side of the street from a gas station and jumped into a Ford F-150 pickup truck belonging to a man, while its owner was in the store.
“The owner of the truck ran after her and hung onto the truck,” Praven Patel, who witnessed the incident, said. “She just kept going,” he said.
The carjacking victim fell off the truck as Evans left the parking lot.
She left her baby carriage behind. The police are looking for her, the truck and the two young children.
“It is scary and the police have to find her before the kids get hurt,” Kim said.
Police say they used GPS to locate the stolen truck on Interstate 20 in Carroll County on Tuesday. Authorities were able to arrest Evans after a chase. During the chase, she allegedly hit a police car.
Evans remains in the Carroll County Jail.
The two children are said to be fine and are being returned to their father in Roswell, police said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
