She had left her car running while she did so. Suddenly, a black Cadillac pulls up to the front of her car and a black male creeps out and into her driver’s seat. When Smith realizes what just happened, she tries to stop the ordeal.
An unknown man got out of a black sedan and hopped inside hers in a possible carjacking attempt. That’s when she decided To take matters into her own hands, and her feet and jumped on top of her car to stop thieves from stealing her car.
Milwaukee police said the investigation was ongoing Thursday and officers continue to seek the suspects.”Certainly her life wasn’t worth that car and that easily could have had a tragic outcome,” he said.
