Hyundai Saga EV concept

A father chased down and beat to death a thief who stole a auto with his children inside, United States police have said.

According to authorities, the mother went inside where her boyfriend worked. She left the vehicle running with her 7-month-old and 1 and 5-year-olds still on the inside while she went to see their father, who works at the restaurant.

At the same time, a 54-year-old man was outside and saw the woman leave the vehicle with the engine running. The police have been examining video footage to identify those involved in the assault of Hood.

"They were able to pull this auto thief out of the vehicle".

"He fled on foot about a half a block". The children's father pulled the thief from the auto and began to attack him as other bystanders joined in. The father ran after the auto and caught up to it after it got stuck in traffic only a block away from where it was stolen. "And the boyfriend caught up to him and there was some sort of physical struggle that ensued", Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told WPVI.
