LITTLETON, Colo. — Littleton Police are searching for a man who pulled a woman out of her van while at a car wash, bit her and then stole the vehicle.
It happened around 12:15 p.m. on Jan. 28 at the Atlantis Car Wash at 5474 S. Federal Circle in Littleton. The victim, a. 63-year-old woman, said she drove into the automatic car wash bay and placed her van in park, which automatically unlocked all of the doors.
As soon as the car wash began and the victim’s windshield was obscured, the man walked up to the driver’s door. He opened it, grabbed the victim’s arm and yelled for her to get of the van.
The victim tried to resist and fight off the man, but he ultimately grabbed her by the neck, bit her and forcibly threw her to the ground. He then took off in the van.
The victim suffered minor injuries.
