Thief caught on video stealing car with 11-year-old in East Harlem


Terrifying, new footage shows a thief wanted for stealing a man’s car in East Harlem climbing into the vehicle to go on a terrifying 20-minute joyride with its owner’s 11-year-old son inside.

The surveillance video, released by cops early Tuesday, shows the suspect opening the door to the orange 2017 Nissan Rogue, getting behind the wheel and driving off – shortly after a pedestrian passed in front of the SUV. 

The boy was sitting in the front passenger seat of the Rogue – which his dad left running as he popped into a City Fresh Market on Third Avenue near East 121st Street around 8 p.m. Sunday – when the unidentified suspect got inside, cops said. 

“I’m a friend of your dad’s,” the suspect allegedly told the boy. “Don’t worry.”

Police are still looking for the man responsible for stealing a Nissan SUV with an 11-year-old boy in the front passenger seat.

About 20 minutes later, the suspect stopped the SUV at Lafayette and Bolton avenues in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx — more than five miles away — and let the boy out, unharmed, cops said. 

The kid used his phone to call his dad, who then notified the police, cops said.
