Posted on 04/19/2014 1:50:04 PM PDT by Morgana
A car thief was forced to pull over after a couple miles in the stolen vehicle because twin boys, age 7, who were in the car attacked him, police said.
One of the boys was punching the man in the face; the other was hitting him with a rubber snake, Sgt. Javier Salazar of the San Antonio Police Department told ABC News.
The car was swiped from in front of the home of Lucia Lozada Thursday as the mother was standing just feet from the vehicle. Her twin sons and a 1-year-old were buckled into the car as the family readied to go to church. The father had gone back into the house to get the baby a bottle.

how did the thief get the car started ???
were the keys in the ignition ???
Ransom of Red Chief ping!
Awesome! Those boys are heroes, they saved themselves and their baby. Great job!
Now those are GOOD boys!
some how they will be punished by the left. How dare these parents raise such animals. The state should take them.
Multiple things run through my mind here.
So much for “don’t be a hero” - there may yet be help for this dependent do-nothing helpless country.
Same time, they were taught the whole “stranger” thing. While kudos to these boys for fighting for themselves and their property, too bad they were yet afraid to talk to normal adults! Luckily they found a child!
A real snake would be optimal but kudos to the fierce little warriors for their improv skills....:)
You know what? If the tykes would have had a real snake I believe they would have used it! Trouble is finding one laying around when you need it.
I can see it now, when they arrest the perp he will sue for an eye injury or something silly.
Self instinct to protect oneself and the family is what occurred here. what good boys they are.
A perfect ending to this story would have been the father coming out and shooting the car jacker.
Perhaps we should carry a good pocket snake at all times, just in case...;)
(Better sssssafe than ssssssorry)
some scumbag lawyer will take that case.
A snake is always the correct accessory.
Apparently the keys were left in the car whether in the ignition, seat
or elsewhere it isn’t stated in articles I’ve read.
Right on, boys!
The kids look a bit “illegal” to me.
Maybe the driver was attempting to deport them....
Yes, they were just leaving to go to Maundy Thursday Church Services, and Mom realized she left the baby's bottle in the house, ans dashed in to get it.
(Of Course I didn’t read the article. After all, this is FreeRepublic..)
Like your tag line. Very appropo, imo.
Good thing the boy didn’t point the snake at him and say bang or the outcome would be quite different.
That’s the first thing that crossed my mind. Ransom of Red Chief X 2.
Way to fight back boys!
Extra style points for the rubber snake. Nice touch. Had to be pretty funny to see a kid beating a carjacker silly with it.
What are the twins being charged with?
Out in the real world, you can be charged with “Going armed to the terror of the public” for walking around with your snek.
Snake is the new black.
It doesn’t show dirt!
Don’t rubber-snake me, bro!
Those kids may very well have saved three lives.
