A trip to the gas station took a dangerous turn for a 76-year-old woman from Ormond Beach.
Holly Hill Police say Jacquelyn MacDougall left her keys in the ignition as she pumped her gas. Police Chief Mark Barker says 20-year-old Randolph Harris was looking for the right opportunity.
"That was all this individual needed. He had an elderly female victim, very vulnerable and keys left in the car."
Investigators say MacDougall had only pumped $23.31 into her tank when Randolph Harris III jumped into the drivers seat of her Chevy Malibu and took off.
"All of a sudden, I hear tires squeal outside, so I took a look over there, and I see the lady holding onto the gas pump and the barrel right at pump No. 6," said Sunoco gas station attendant Scott Worster.
MacDougall told police a recent stroke left her with little control over the right side of her body, and she was unable to let go of the nozzle.
"She was still holding onto it, and then when the car peeled around the corner the lady got dragged like 10 feett," said Worster. Then, she dropped to the ground, leaving her with a bloody gash on her head and a broken arm.
"I called 911," said Worster.
Less than an hour later, Daytona Police caught up with harris when he lost control and crashed into fence. Harris is charged with car jacking, battery, theft of a person over 65, along with a slue of other charges.
This marks Johnson's sixth arrest in the past two years. Police say this is his second arrest for stealing a car. "I hope he get what he deserves," said Worster.
