Wild Ride: Man clings to thief’s truck

Security camera footage shows California man cling to thief's getaway vehicle after his cell phone is stolen.

(KSEE) California’s Madera County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in identifying three people to a cell phone theft incident that resulted in an injury.

It happened on April 25 and the whole incident was caught on surveillance video footage from the Lucky 7 gas station in Madera Ranchos.

In the footage, a 62-year-old man is shown walking out of the gas station’s store when he noticed a woman in her 20s in his vehicle. He yelled at her to stop as she started to run to her getaway vehicle with his cell phone on-hand.

Even after she got in her vehicle, the man continued to pursue her and ended up hanging onto the vehicle – a blue/green colored Chevy S-10 pickup truck – as it started to drive off. He continued to hold on as the vehicle as it drove on Avenue 12 and back into the gas station’s parking lot.

When the man lost his grip, he was flung onto the ground. He suffered a laceration to the head. His cell phone was shown to be thrown to the ground, too, in the video.
