Very Wrong Car There Dudes

Armed teens tried to carjack officer

In a sterling example of a lousy victim selection process, five teen criminals attempt to car jack a Pittsburgh police officer.
Officer Caytlin Wood had her engine running Monday afternoon before heading for the 4-to-midnight shift when she saw five teens behaving suspiciously in the Bloomfield neighborhood. She called for backup to investigate.

Police say a 14-year-old boy demanded the car while pointing a gun at Wood, who was wearing a sweat shirt over her police uniform. They say the boy ran when Wood stepped out but she caught him a block away. They say backup officers caught the other teens, aged 14 to 17.

The juveniles have been charged with robbery of a motor vehicle and criminal conspiracy. The 14-year-old boy has been charged with illegal possession of a firearm.
Not only do they pick an armed law enforcement officer as a victim, then one of them gets caught by her after they all try to run away.

Very Nice job on the part of the officer to not only defend herself but also catch the twerp pointing a gun at her, and let's hope she just cut 5 future criminal careers short.
