11-year-old robbery suspect was driving stolen car

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — An 11-year-old and a 17-year-old were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of robbing an 80-year-old California man, and police said the 11-year-old was driving a stolen car.

The robbery victim, an Asian man, was walking in a residential area of San Leandro when he was attacked and robbed by the two juveniles, KRON-TV reported. Police tracked down the suspects and said the 11-year-old was behind the wheel of a vehicle stolen during a carjacking in Oakland on Monday.

“We are thankful that we were able to capture these juveniles safely and expeditiously,” police Lieutenant Ali Khan said.

Detectives are investigating whether the suspects committed any other crimes in the San Francisco Bay Area.

1. Why I drive a manual transmission.

I feel incredibly safe from having my car stolen.

2. Bingo!

I drive a stick also. No one below the age of 60 will steal my car. If they are a senior, they probably did it for kicks.

LOL

3. What's really fun is when I go to purchase a replacement car.

The last time was nearly three years ago. All of the sales people are much younger than I am, and most of them have never known a woman who can drive a stick.
