After the cab crashed, police said Mohamed took off in the Cavalier and then crashed into a business. He got out of the car and stole a school van. The driver of the van managed to get an 8-year-old boy off of the vehicle before Mohamed stole it.
Later, Mohamed crashed the van into another group of cars. Authorities said Mohamed was trying steal another car when witnesses pinned Mohamed down and waited for authorities….
