Reno police seek man who tried to steal car with kids inside

RENO (AP) - Reno police are looking for a man they say tried to steal a car with two small children inside.

A woman had just loaded the two children into her car Saturday night when she turned around to lock the door to her business.

That's when a man jumped into the vehicle and started to drive off with the kids in the back seat.

Police say the woman's boyfriend gave chase, jumped into the stolen car and pleaded with the man to stop.

The man lost control of the vehicle after driving a short distance and crashed into a concrete wall. He fled on foot. The two children sustained minor injuries.
