MILWAUKEE, WI --A Milwaukee woman had her car stolen Monday morning with her infant inside, Alderman Mark Borkowski told WISN-TV.
She was driving her baby to day care around 6:45 a.m. near 66th and Montana streets when she was hit from behind in a bump-and-run incident. When she got out, two people forced their way into her car and took off, Borkowski said. Her baby boy was in the back seat.
"He shoved me towards the back of my car and ran and jumped into my car," said the woman, who did not wish to be identified. "I grabbed onto the door handle. I was banging on the window trying to tell him please don't take my baby."
She was then dragged down the street.
"I didn't want to let go. I tried everything that I could do to hold onto that door handle for as long as I could," she said.
As she was running toward the car, she saw one of the carjackers carefully remove her 1-month-old son still strapped in his car seat sound asleep.
"I don't understand how you can show some sort of compassion at that point towards an infant but then you're stealing somebody's car," she said.
The baby was unhurt. A witness who ran out to help the woman was nearly speechless talking about what he saw.
"She's trying to stop them, and she's dragging her around corner," witness Christopher Dean said.
"We simply cannot continue with the status quo and with conditions that are making Milwaukee one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S.," Borkowski said.
Police are still looking for the car. It's a white 2009 Audi A4. It has a Wisconsin license plate No. 532 WZJ.
