Armed Driver and Baggy Pants Thwart Carjacking
Police say an 18-year-old carjacker approached August Peters, 74, as he exited his vehicle.
"Give me your car or I'll kill you," the carjacker said, putting a knife to Peters' throat.
Luckily for Peters, he had an item that made him the physical equal of his youthful adversary—a firearm.
Peters grabbed his pistol from inside the car and fired, striking the carjacker at least once.
The suspect fled through a nearby home, struggling to run in his baggy pants, which fell off in the kitchen as he ran for the back door.
Police caught up with the pantless suspect nearby.
