    PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police say parents chased down a car thief and killed him after he allegedly stole a vehicle with their children inside on Thursday night.

    It happened near 29th and Dauphin Street in the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia.


    According to police, the mother was traveling with her three kids when she stopped to visit her boyfriend at a pizza shop. That's when police say a 54-year-old suspect jumps into the vehicle and takes off when she leaves the car running. But the suspect doesn't get far.

    Police say the parents catch up to the suspect after he gets stuck in traffic, and pull him out of the car.

    "They were able to pull this car thief out of the vehicle. He fled on foot about a half a block. And the boyfriend caught up to him and there was some sort of physical struggle that ensued. Then other males from the neighborhood intervened and began punching and kicking the male who took the vehicle," said Chief Inspector Scott Small with the Philadelphia Police Department.


    The suspect was rushed to the hospital where he later died.

    It's unclear if any charges will be filed.

    The proper title should be

    Based on my interactions with the cops here, vigilantism is our best bet.

    I really wonder sometimes how vigilantism & local security arrangements would actually compete with having a police force.

    It says the parents chased down the thief but it also says the mother was driving then stopped at a pizza joint to talk/meet her boyfriend.
    Anyhow, it sounds like the neighborhood took care of business.

    "West Philadelphia born and raised
    On the playground was where I spent most of my days
    Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
    And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
    When saw a car thief up to no good
    So I chased him down beat him on a stoop."
