SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – September 8, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Salt Lake Police are looking for a suspect wanted for stealing a car along with a 90-year-old grandmother who was sleeping inside.

According to investigators, the woman’s 44-year-old granddaughter had taken her to church on Sunday when after the services were over, she offered to give the grandmother’s friend a ride home to a house located at 814 West 300 North in Salt Lake City.

When the woman arrived at the friends house, she escorted the friend into her home and left her Lexus running out front. When she returned, she discovered her car had been stolen.

“Without the woman’s knowledge, somehow her grandmother got into the back seat of the vehicle and fallen asleep,” said Salt Lake Police Detective Greg Wilking. “The suspect would not have noticed the grandmother until she woke up and sat up in the backseat, at which point he told her to get out.”

Detective Wilking said the victim does not speak English so the suspect must have decided to pull over to let himself out instead. The woman managed to call her family and police found her and the car in the area of 400 E. Heather St. in Midvale.

The suspect, only described as a black adult male in his 30’s, managed to steal the elderly woman’s purse, containing only her bible, before he fled on foot.

Detectives are asking for anyone who may have witnessed anything to please call Salt Lake City Police at 801-799-3000.
