The mother of the 12-year-old girl who jumped from a moving car in a hijack says driver has "ruined" their lives.Read the full story ›
The Met Police say a 12-year-old-girl had to force her way out of the passenger door before she tumbled into the street in a car hijack.
Her 11-month old sibling was left in the back as the thief sped off in Enfield.
Because there were no rear doors, she had to force her way between the seats, where the suspect was, open the passenger door, and bail out.
New CCTV has been released showing the moment a man stole a car with two children still inside it in Enfield last week
Their mother had parked the car to go to the local shops, when a man drove off. Her 12 year old daughter then threw herself out of the car, with her baby brother still inside. He was later found unharmed.
Police are appealing for the man to hand himself in.
All the victims involved have been put through an awful ordeal, none more so than the little 12-year-old girl. The fact that she threw herself out of moving vehicle just shows how frightened she was.
She is a very fortunate little girl as the situation could have been so much worse, it could have resulted in her sustaining significant injuries or could have resulted in her dying had she been hit by an oncoming car.
I would like to take this opportunity to praise the bravery of the girl involved as well as thanking the member of the public who found the little boy on their doorstep. They took such great care of him and both the police and the child’s mother are very grateful.
The incident happened at around 12:45pm on 2 July 2 in Kempe Road, Enfield, when the 27-year-old mother of the two children parked her black three-door Vauxhall Astra to go to nearby shops.
The mother and an adult relative got out of the vehicle leaving her 11-month-old son and 12-year-old daughter in the car.
An unknown man then got in and drove the car off at speed.
The suspect is described as a white male, in his late teens, with light hair in a spiky style and possibly wearing a hooded top.
There have been no arrests and enquires continue.
Anyone with information is asked to call Enfield CID on 020 8345 3323 or the police non-emergency line on 101.
