On Thursday, June 14, a man was in the parking lot of a Farmer Jack store in Dearborn, Michigan when he was approached by a carjacker. The boy was holding a hammer and threatening the man to hand over the keys to his car.
The man did not feel threatened enough by the pint sized criminal and refused to give up his car to the boy.
He called the cops instead. When the cops came shortly after the call they arrested the 11-year-old Detroit kid. He was charged with carjacking and felonious assault before being sent to a Detroit Juvenile Detention center.
The judge at the Juvenile place refused bond to the child and will keep him locked up until the kid's court date on June 26.
The kid has an attorney who is saying the cops have the wrong boy. Her client is not guilty of the crime. She reported that the victim claimed a 16-year-old boy tried to carjack him, but her client is only eleven.
