WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A teen suspect has been arrested as a suspect in a carjacking that involved an 82-year-old man who received minor injuries when he was pushed during the theft Thursday morning.

It happened in the parking lot of Towne East Square in the 7700 block of East Kellogg.

The 82-year-old man told police the suspect assaulted him and took his red 2012 Ford F-150.

“The victim was walking out of the mall with his vehicle keys in his hand. The unknown suspect approached him and demanded the keys. The victim refused and was threatened by the suspect. The suspect pushed the victim causing him to fall,” said officer Kevin Wheeler, Wichita Police Department.

The suspect drove off in the victim’s truck. The truck has since been recovered.

Police believe a 15-year-old boy is connected with this case and a robbery at a convenience store. He was booked under two counts of aggravated robbery.
