Houston Carjack: Stick Shift Foils Would-Be Thieves; 2 Teens Caught

By    |   Wednesday, 03 Dec 2014 04:13 PM

Two teens who attempted to carjack a Baylor School of Medicine resident in Houston were foiled because they didn’t know how to operate the vehicle’s stick shift.

The suspects, who were armed with a gun, told the victim to get out of his car before realizing they didn’t know how to drive the stick shift, KPRC-TV reported.

"The suspects were unfamiliar with the operation of a standard transmission and they tried to get the victim to show them how to drive the standard while he was being held at gunpoint," Inspector Stefan Happ said, according to KPRC-TV.

The victim called police after being told to get out of the car a few blocks away. Police began a vehicle pursuit, but the suspects jumped out of the vehicle and ran, the station reported. The suspects, identified as 17-year-old Anthony Evans-Warner and a 15-year-old unnamed suspect were arrested and the car was returned to its owner.

A similar incident happened in Seattle in June, when three would-be carjackers tried to steal a stick shift car from a 70-year-old woman.
