ST. PETERSBURG — Police are seeking a teenage suspect who they say punched a 54-year-old woman, stole her car — and ran over her foot Monday.
The incident took place at about 11:15. The woman, who was not identified by police, was putting air in the rear left tire of her car at the Wawa at 2465 22nd Ave. N, police said.
Then a teenage boy entered the driver's seat, police said. The woman confronted him, and in the resulting altercation police said he punched her. The woman fell to the ground, officers said, and the suspect ran over her left foot while driving away in her white 2012 Scion xD hatchback.
A nearby security camera captured the boy riding his bike near the scene before the theft. Police said he was wearing a "distinctive green striped shirt."
St. Petersburg police ask anyone with more information about this incident to call (727) 893-7780.
