A man told Norristown police that someone stole his unlocked car after he left it to bring his child into a school building.
On Dec. 30 at 6:54 a.m., a Norristown officer went to the St. Francis of Assisi School & Early Learning Center in response to a complaint about a stolen car, a dark blue Nissan Maxima, according to a Norristown police report.
The owner told police that he had parked the car on the 1100 block of West Oak Street around 6:50 a.m., leaving it running and unlocked.
He walked his child into the school, and when he exited the building two minutes later, he saw that his car was gone.
A witness told police that he was making a school delivery when he saw an African American male who looked to be about 5’8”-5’”10 and 18-22 years old, wearing all black, and a black “‘skully cap,’” pop into the car and drive east on West Oak Street in the direction of Noble Street.
