Car Thief Beaten to Death by Angry Mob in Philadelphia

Hyundai Motor aims to go big with all-new model for Europe

- Philadelphia police say a carjacking suspect has died after he allegedly stole a auto with three children inside and was chased down by their parents Thursday night.

The woman was visiting her boyfriend, 25, who worked at the pizzeria and left her Hyundai Sedan running outside.

A Philadelphia father assisted by bystanders allegedly fatally assaulted a suspect who stole his girlfriend's vehicle with their young children inside.

The man, 54, drove off with the auto while the children's mother and father were in a store Thursday night, police said.

"They were able to pull this auto thief out of the vehicle".

A Philadelphia father chased down a carjacker, pulled him out of the vehicle and beat him to death. The police have been examining video footage to identify those involved in the assault of Hood.

The children in the vehicle were not harmed, police said. "And the boyfriend caught up to him and there was some sort of physical struggle that ensued", Small said.

Hood was later taken to the hospital and was pronounced dead a short time later.

The other men who jumped in the fight were not located.

"We are working on finding out who these other men were that also assaulted the individual that subsequently died", said Chief Inspector Scott Small from the Philadelphia Police Department.

Police took both parents into custody to determine whether to press homicide charges.

Police are investigating and had not made any arrests Friday afternoon.

Cops are now waiting for the Medical Examiner's Office to determine Hood's cause of death.
