A suspected illegal immigrant is now in custody after he carjacked an elderly Missouri woman and threw her from the vehicle, police say.
Kansas City police say a friend drove the elderly woman to a pharmacy to pick up her prescription when a Hispanic man pointed a gun at the driver and drove off with the 91-year-old woman inside, FOX 4 reports.

“The 91-year-old was still sitting in the passenger seat when the individual got in the car and started to take off,” said Kansas City Police Officer Darin Snapp to FOX 4. “They had a short exchange of conversation. She said, ‘Are you stealing my car?’ He said ‘Yes.’ That’s when he forces her out of the passenger’s door, pushes her out. The vehicle is still moving when she is thrown out.”
The elderly woman suffered minor injuries to her hip and back.
Police found the car and the suspect after a short chase where the armed man fled the scene before police arrested him.
Police are in the process of identifying the subject, believed to be an illegal immigrant, and expect to charge him with eluding police and carjacking, FOX 4 reports.
