CONLEY, Ga. (AP) - Police were searching for a suspect after a boy was hurt while trying to save his sister in a carjacking.
Clayton County police say the crime happened Monday on Willow Way in the county just south of Atlanta.
The boy, 9-year-old Brannon Brown, tells WSB-TV that the suspect jumped in the car with his 5-year-old sister inside.
The carjacker put the vehicle in reverse and tried to back up, but Brannon says he "shoved it back in park."
Brannon said the car door hit him and he fell, and the carjacker took off with his sister inside.
The children's mother, Ashley Brown, said the girl was let out of the car several miles away, near a salon on Jonesboro Road. She was unharmed.
Brannon's injuries were described as minor.
