CANARSIE, Brooklyn — Police safely recovered three children three hours after the SUV they were in was stolen by a man in Brooklyn, the NYPD said Friday.
Police are now looking for the perp, who was last seen wearing dark colored clothing and a lighter-colored hoodie.
The white 2005 Acura SUV was initially carjacked at about 4:30 p.m., after it was left running with no driver inside near Flatlands Avenue and 81st Street.
"When we arrived there the kids looked very scared and nervous," NYPD Officer Matthew Woods said.
The three children were taken to a hospital as a precaution. Police say the children appeared unharmed.
"I could just imagine how she felt, like she came outside and her three kids were gone," Dwight Bowman, a neighbor, said.
