Man fails in attempt to recover his stolen vehicle

By Penny Kiryk. CREATED Feb 7, 2014

Cold overnight temperatures continue, and Wichita Police are warning drivers to not leave a car unattended and running.

At about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, a 29 year old man went out to his car in the 6400 block of West Hollywood, he started it, and went back into the home to let it warm up.

When he looked out, he saw someone driving it away. He then chased the vehicle, jumped on the hood, and was on top of it for about a block.

The car thief then met up with another suspect in a vehicle who ended up having a gun and fired a shot in the air.

The victim ran back home, and called police. The suspects haven't been found.

The victim's car is a dark blue Chevy Monte Carlo, with a Kansas tag of 318 APV.
