Teddy has been found! Good Samaritan locates dog after carjacking
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.
