According to WSOC-TV, a group of young kids is trying to force their way into people’s cars. This is happening even when the drivers are still in the car!
One of the victims told police a group of young kids pulled her car door open before her dogs scared them off. She told Channel 9 they were very young. She said “But he looked, they were pretty little. They were definitely younger kids.”
Police say the children flagged down three women in the Barringer Woods community asking to use the phone. One of the victims said, “As I was at the stop sign a little guy, I thought maybe fourth grade, came over to my car and said he needed to use the phone, he needed to get in touch with his parents. He kept saying he thought the car was a nice car. He asked me if he could drive it, and I just looked at him and I went, ‘No, don’t be silly.’ I said no and that’s when he jumped and got out.”
All of the situations occurred around the middle of August.
