Student robbed after driving strangers
Three suspects stole a female student’s car after she offered to give them a ride to a MetroLink stop on Thursday around noon.
Police officers found one juvenile suspect and took him into custody. The vehicle was recovered in St. Louis and the victim was uninjured.
The victim had been biking on Enright near Westgate when three teenagers flagged her down. One suspect said that his girlfriend was going to have a baby, and they needed directions to the MetroLink station, a police report said.
The victim went home to get her car and offered to drive the suspects. They got in and told her they knew a shortcut on the 6200 block of North Drive. When she stopped the car, they pushed her out and drove away, the police report said.
According to the report, witnesses who heard her screaming pursued one of the suspects on foot and recovered her purse.
