GREENFIELD (WITI) — Teddy the dog has been found! Teddy went missing after a carjacking  on Wednesday, June 11th near 47th and Forest Home Ave. Teddy was found by a good Samaritan near 54th and Ohio.

Police say a Franklin woman was punched in the head — her vehicle, and her dog “Teddy” taken.

Officers were dispatched to the area just before 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11th — for a report of a female in distress.  The woman had been robbed of her vehicle and purse.

The victim indicated two black male suspects appeared to have been following her in a darker colored van. When she stopped, they forcibly removed her from the vehicle, striking her and then knocking her to the ground.

“I had a sense that they were following. Halfway up the driveway I realized they were running towards me, and I better run to my vehicle. That’s when they approached me, punched me and threw me down,” Connie Larmon says of the attack.

Inside the vehicle were the victim’s two dogs — Teddy and Buddy. Before the suspects drove away, one of the dogs jumped out of the vehicle, but the other was trapped in the car as the suspects fled.

“They took the car and I knew immediately the dog was in it,” Connie Larmon said.

The suspects abandoned the stolen vehicle near 43rd and Morgan. When police found the vehicle, the victim’s dog was missing.

Teddy and Connie were reunited Friday, June 13th after a good Samaritan found him wandering around near 54th and Ohio.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects is asked to contact Greenfield police at 414-761-5301 or anonymously at 1-800-78-CRIME.

    Amen mjklemm!! Time for society to start executing ALL violent criminals. Save us taxpayers some money. Also stop paying for lazy POS to keep breeding. No work,no money. Taxpayer burdens breed more taxpayer burdens.

    I’m overjoyed this poor woman got her dog back. The two dirt-ball perpetrators will probably be dead in a few years of either a drug overdose, or getting shot by one of their thug associates.

    Let us hope so TOM….and that it be SOONER THAN LATER! I have no feelings for this kind of scum. There is not any kind of excuse for what they did. If it had been a child they would have left him/her to fend for themselves. God Bless the person who found TEDDY! Thank you Lord for your Blessings.

      So where was god when this dog got jacked in the first place? Coffee break? If he was real this wouldn’t have happened in the first place. Just like the holocaust and 9/11.

    Story makes no sense. First it says she stopped and thats when they pulled her out of the car. Later it says she noticed them following her and ran to the car.
