Dallas police are searching for a man who carjacked a woman and her baby Sunday afternoon after shoplifting from a nearby Walmart.
Police said the man stole a t-shirt from the store and then jumped into the woman's car in a Starbucks parking lot while police were chasing him. The man didn't realize the woman and her 15-month-old daughter were sitting inside the vehicle, police said.
"I thought we were dead," Kari Kimbler said. "I thought he was going to take us somewhere and dump us off or kill us. I had no idea what was going to happen."
Kimbler said her husband had gone inside the Starbucks when the man jumped in the driver's seat and took off. She said he started driving erratically, going the wrong way down Cockrell Hill Road.
"I started hitting him and beating him and screaming, ‘My baby, my baby -- I have my baby. Please let us out. Please dump us out. I don't care where it is. Please let us out,'" Kimbler said She said the man
"Then momma bear kicked, and I all could think was, 'I've got to protect my baby with all that I have,' and it came out, and I just beat the living daylights out of him as hard as I could -- in his head, just punching in his head, and she was screaming too," Kimbler said.
