Stick shift deters teens' attempt at car theft

  06/23/2014
A Seattle woman was taking something out of her trunk when she was approached by three teens who had a gun.

They demanded her keys, so she threw them on the ground.

"I thought it was a joke," she told KOMO News.

The woman told the news station that her body froze as the three suspects go into her car and thought they could get away. But there was just one problem.

Her car was a five speed, and they didn't know how to drive it.

When the teens figured out they couldn't get away, they fled on foot.

Seattle police are still searching for the suspects.
