(Scroll down for video) Two little boys saw nice looking cars that all the big boys drive as too tempting not take take one out on a joy ride, according to a statement released by police in Denmark.
Danish police said two children, ages 6 and 7, stole a car from their apartment complex parking lot, and went for a joy ride.
Investigators said the boys, from the city of Falster Nykobing, escaped from the 24 hour secured facility through a window and stole the keys to a Toyota Aygo which belongs to the facility.
Henrik Karlsen, a spokesperson for Southern Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police said the boys drove about 1.8 kilometers before they were stopped by a man who called the police.
Karlsen said the children were careful drivers.
"The boys told police they stopped whenever there was a red light," Karlsen said.
The police also said that the children successfully drove the car because one of them is very tall for his age.
“I would definitely question the security guard at the facility. Why didn't the security guard stop the children? Was he sleeping on the job? Police need to find out why the children were able to steal the car undetected. It could have ended badly,” Phyllis Carter, 27, of Copenhagen, Denmark told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the boys.
Karlsen said that no charges are pending against the children.
This is not the first time a 7-year-old boy took a car out on a joy ride. Latarian Milton, 7, took his grandmother's car out for a joy ride until he was stopped several blocks away.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
