Carjacker drops child off about a half mile away.
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; police are searching for a man who stole a woman's car outside an east Houston store Monday night with her daughter still strapped inside.
The carjacker jumped the woman about 7:30 p.m. just after she and her daughter walked out of the store in the 5800 block of Lyons. Her daughter, 4, was inside the Nissan Xterra.
"He threatened to kill her if she didn't give up the vehicle," said John Cannon, an HPD spokesman.
The woman fought with the carjacker but couldn't prevent her daughter from being taken. HPD officials said he dropped the child off about a half mile away.
