Two Thugs Attempt to Carjack Vehicle, End Up in Hospital

Two teenage thugs ended up in hospital after attempting to carjack a vehicle from an unsuspecting victim.

Police said that a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old had attempted to carjack the vehicle but did not get very far.

As the teens drove off, they hit a tree, then caromed off to hit another tree.

According to police, the teens were trapped inside the vehicle until first responders arrived to free them.

They were later rushed to hospital.

Police said the teens will be charged.

As The Western Journal reported:

According to Philadelphia police data, 19,213 automobiles have been stolen in the city this year to date, up from 9,610 a year ago.

That is a 99.93 percent increase.

In a September report, WPVI-TV noted that police warned motorists that carjackings at gunpoint often led to the vehicle being driven out of state and into New Jersey.

“You can’t even park your car anymore in your neighborhood and feel safe that your car is going to be safe,” said David Jackson, who lives near the scene of one carjacking.

“To be honest, I felt like everywhere is not safe anymore,” the station quoted one South Philadelphia carjacking victim as saying.

He said he exited his vehicle to find a gun pointed at him.

“The second came with an assault rifle with him, and that’s when I decided, ‘Oh I don’t think it’s worth anymore to fight,'” he said.

In August, police arrested a 15-year-old in Camden, New Jersey, in connection with an attempted carjacking that resulted in the death of a 50-year-old Philadelphia man, according to WCAU.

Michael Salerno was shot in the head, Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

“It appears that the shooter or shooters were standing very, very close to this 50-year-old victim when the shot was fired,” Small said.

Philadelphia Police Homicide Lt. Hamilton Marshmond said three people were involved in the incident, in which the suspects appeared to drive around looking for a potential carjacking victim.

“We as a society can no longer accept the actions of individuals who prey on this city,” Marshmond said.

“We can no longer make excuses for criminals that continue to break the laws and kill members of our society.”

As the carjacking epidemic continues in Washing ton DC, Conservatives on Capitol Hill called to confront a crime crisis that they say many Democrats recently voted against addressing, in response to Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar being carjacked earlier this week.

“My friend, @RepCuellar (D. TX), became the victim of a crime tonight in what’s considered a nice part of D.C. D.C. is dangerous,” Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Something’s gone terribly wrong here—for far too long. Congress has the sole power to make D.C.’s laws, and must intervene.”

“The crime wave in poorly-run liberal cities like DC is unacceptable & more importantly, preventable,” Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose posted on X.

“Hire more police Enforce the law Remove prosecutors who refuse to do their job I’m glad Rep. Cuellar is okay, but it’s time for Congress to act.”
