A Hephzibah woman says she and her two children were pulled forcibly from her car by a gang of thieves that included a woman who had sold her the car.
Jasmine Ryan, of Byrd Road, told deputies that she had recently purchased a Toyota Corolla from a woman she identified as Destiny Perkins, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.
Ryan said she pulled into a parking lot at 2545 Peach Orchard Road about 5 p.m. Thursday and another vehicle pulled in behind her. Perkins and two black men got out of the vehicle and dragged Ryan from the driver’s seat, Ryan told deputies. The trio then removed Ryan’s two young children, who were in child restraint seats, and placed them on the ground before leaving in the car, the report said.
Deputies noted that Ryan had several cuts to her left elbow.
