Young Boys Take Car of Woman in Her 60s


Two boys thought to be aged 7 and 12 have stolen a car from a woman in her 60s. The woman was reversing onto a driveway in Ipswich last Saturday when a small child opened the door of her car and held a knife toward her. He was soon joined by the other and they demanded the woman to get out of her five-door maroon Mazda 5 Takara. The boys were able to take the car and sped off.

Although the car was later found abandoned, the police are still trying to find the young carjackers.

Tim Passmore, Suffolk police and crime commissioner, stated that he was shocked by the incident. “I have never seen anything like this before. The concerning thing is these two were so young. I don't understand how a 7- and a 12-year-old get hold of a knife and then use it to threaten a woman. There are parents or an organization out there who need to take responsibility for these children more seriously,” he said.

The neighborhood was also shocked by the news. One neighbor, who wanted to remain anonymous, said, “What sort of parents let a seven-year-old child wander the streets with a knife, attacking elderly ladies?”

The Daily Mail, a British daily middle-market newspaper published in London in a tabloid format, reported that the 7-year-old boy is of a stockier build between 4-feet-8 inch and 5-feet-1-inch tall with dark hair and dark eyes. The 12-year-old boy is of small build, between 4 feet-10 inches and 5 feet-2 inches with dark hair and dark eyes.

According to the police, although the woman was not physically harmed, she was left shaken. Detective Inspector Holly Evans stated that she had reacted well in the situation. “Anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation should not put themselves in harm's way and get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
