Armed Citizen Stops Carjacking In Progress

posted on October 9, 2015

A man reportedly entered a convenience store in Plymouth, Penn., acting strangely and then attempted to get into a stranger’s car outside. After failing, he reportedly ran across the adjacent highway and tried to pull a woman out of her car while her children were in the back seat. “She was yelling, ‘My kids are in the car, my kids are in the car,’” said the woman whom he first accosted.

According to the Times Leader, the car crossed the highway and approached the store while the suspect struggled with the driver. At this point, customer Rob Ragukus, who had just pulled up, drew his firearm on the attempted carjacker. “I have a license to carry this gun, don’t move!” he said. 

Police had already been called and took the suspect into custody, and the woman driving the car received no major injuries.
