A 10-year-old Chicago boy got taken on a wild ride Tuesday morning with a pair of car thieves.
Heading to the car before school, the young boy got ahead of his mother and waited for her in the family's SUV. He was sitting in the backseat.
Then, someone jumped into the driver seat and took off.
"That's when a girl came rushing down and opened the car. And she just ran with the car,” 10-year-old Richard said.
The girl drove away with Richard in the back seat.
"I didn't say anything because I was like in shock and panic and I was really, really scared. And I started crying, but she still didn't listen to me,” said Richard.
Richard says the girl then picked up another young man and a short time later, they realized he was in the back.
"They said, 'there's a boy here!' And then they said, 'hey you boy, get out, get out!' And I just got out with my backpack and my sister's sweater,” Richard said.
He was dropped off in an alley several blocks away from his home. One of the thieves even told him to have a good day at school after seeing his backpack.
