HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A carjacker made off with a woman’s truck outside of a Spring Walmart with the woman’s child still in the car Wednesday night.

As the mother attempted to maneuver into a parking spot, she noticed that several grocery carts were in the parking spot. She got out of her truck to move them and that’s when a SUV crashed into the grocery carts and a man got out of the passenger side of the SUV.

He then got into the truck’s driver’s side and began to drive off with the woman’s 7-year-old in the back seat. The mom tried to hold onto the truck to retrieve her child but she was not able to get the young girl.

Additional reports indicate that when the suspect noticed that the young girl was in the truck, he demanded that she get out. The young girl told authorities that he pulled her out, opened the truck’s door and threw her out of the vehicle.

The suspect eventually got away in the mother’s truck which is described as a maroon Chevy Silverado. It has Texas plates 30Z-FF5. Officials said that the other man who was driving the SUV that ran into the carts, also fled the scene. The little girl and mom did not suffer major injuries.There were no other injuries reported.

Anyone with information about the stolen vehicle is urged to call police.
