The investigation revealed the male victim stopped at the Laundromat to get some change. The victim left his keys inside of his unlocked vehicle as he entered the business. The victim returned to his vehicle and found a female suspect sitting in the driver's seat of his vehicle. The victim confronted the suspect about being inside of his vehicle. The suspect proceeded to start the victim's vehicle and place the vehicle in reverse.

The victim was dragged through the parking lot, over hedges and onto Alvarado-Niles Rd.
