Suspected carjacker rams into multiple cars at Agoura Hills parking lot
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. - A chaotic scene in Agoura Hills as a carjacking suspect went on a rampage in a busy Ralph’s parking lot.
The violent confrontation was caught on video by bystanders at the grocery store on Canyon Road.
Deputies say a female suspect pulled an elderly woman from her vehicle then rammed the vehicle into a wall. The woman had allegedly tried to snatch the elderly woman's purse before jumping into the car.
Deputies say the car had a club anti-theft device on the steering wheel, making it impossible to turn, but the crime-spree suspect tried anyways.
"Kind of like a ping pong ball off the other cars," said Joselyn Palmer, a witness.
Palmer and a group of good Samaritans jumped in to stop the suspect after she got out of the now-damaged car, held the suspect down until law enforcement came in and detained her.
Deputies say the suspect also hit around eight other cars in the parking lot. The elderly woman was shaken up but isn't seriously hurt and none of the witnesses sustained injuries.
The suspect suffered minor injuries from the series of crashes. Officials have not revealed the crime-spree suspect's identity.
