Man's truck stolen while 3-year-old still inside

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -

A Tucson man had a very scary morning after his truck was stolen with his 3-year-old daughter still inside.

Police say a man was unloading his two kids from his truck and had taken his son inside when he heard his truck slam into gear.

He ran outside to see his Dodge Durango speeding down the street. His 3-year-old daughter was still inside.

The terrified father was able to flag down a passing car, then chased his truck down the road.

"My son is very shaken up. He has a very good description of the suspect, he does know what he looks like and he was really traumatized. First words were ‘Daddy the guy took your truck," says dad Johnny Ramirez. 

The carjacker eventually stopped the truck and ran off. The little girl wasn't injured -- but police are still looking for the man who stole the truck.
