This is the moment a car thief dumps a terrified little girl onto the street after stealing a parked car left with its motor running.
The incident was filmed in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia before the suspect was later arrested and charged with stealing a total of 14 vehicles.
In his latest carjacking, the suspect – name not disclosed by local media – was caught on CCTV stealing a car left with its engine idling and a young girl sitting in the back seat.
In the footage, the suspect is seen lingering next to the car as a motorist gets out of the parked vehicle next to it.
When the coast is clear, the man jumps into the driver’s seat and starts to reverse out of the parking space.
He suddenly stops in the middle of the road and a back door opens. A frightened young girl is then pushed out of the car and onto the street.
She gets up from her knees as the door promptly shuts behind her and the video comes to an end.
The local police said the driver fled the scene but was later tracked down and arrested.
According to reports, the police believe the man stole a total of 14 vehicles which have all been recovered.
The suspect has been referred to the public prosecutor’s office as the investigation continues.
