Hyundai Motor aims to go big with all-new model for Europe

A 54-year-old man who allegedly stole a vehicle with kids inside on Thursday night in Philadelphia was beaten to death by the kid's father and a group of bystanders after the father chased after him and got support from the bystanders.

The mother and her boyfriend are cooperating with police and are being questioned by homicide detectives.

A 25-year-old woman parked her vehicle outside a restaurant, leaving her three kids inside, so she could run inside and see her boyfriend, who is the father of two of the three kids.

He told WPVI: 'They [parents] were able to pull this auto thief out of the vehicle.

District Attorney Larry Krasner told local media it was too early to comment on any potential charges, but authorities are using footage from a nearby surveillance camera to search for the other men involved in the beating.

"They were able to pull this auto thief out of the vehicle", chief inspector Scott Small, of the Philadelphia Police Department, told local television station WPVI. The auto thief only drove half a block before he became stuck in traffic.

The woman's boyfriend, the father of two of the children, managed to chase the auto when it got stuck in traffic.

'And the boyfriend caught up to him and there was some sort of physical struggle that ensued.

"Then other males from the neighbourhood intervened and began punching and kicking the male who took the vehicle".

The thief assaulted the father and fled, but a large crowd stopped the suspect and beat him, police said.

Police are investigating and had not made any arrests Friday afternoon.
