A parent’s nightmare almost became a reality Tuesday morning at 77th and Jaynes Street in Omaha. Police Officer Jacob Bettin says a suspected car-jacker attempted to take a vehicle that was occupied by an 8-year-old child.
Officer Bettin says around 8:30 Tuesday morning the suspect had just noticed the child inside the car when a parent walked out of the home and confronted the suspect. At that time the suspect ran to a waiting vehicle that took off.
The child was not hurt and investigators are looking for the suspect as well as checking into why the child was alone inside the vehicle.
