She says a teenage male “snuck up” behind her and ran off with the keys to her mother’s black, 2011 Subaru Outback. She chased him outside and tried to open the door, but he reversed out of the parking lot and headed west on Wyoming, the report reads.

A security guard who witnessed the incident told police four juveniles were in the library with the suspect and left just after the woman arrived. The suspect returned only to take her keys and run out the door, according to the report.

The suspect was described as a black male between 16 and 17-years old with short, black hair and a thin build. He was wearing a white tank top, dark blue jeans with light blue basketball shorts under the jeans.
