PHILADELPHIA, P.A. (AP) â€” Pennsylvania authorities say a man who stole a car with three young children inside was fatally beaten by their father and other men.
Philadelphia police say the car was parked at a pizza restaurant with its engine running when the man drove off around 9:15 p.m. Thursday.
The childrenâ€™s mother was inside the restaurant, talking with the father of two of the kids.
The vehicle soon got stuck in traffic, and authorities say the couple pulled the 54-year-old man out of the vehicle. The man ran off but was caught by the father. A fight ensued, with other men joining in.
The man was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital, where he died.
No charges have been filed. The children, whose ages range from 7 months to 5 years, were not hurt.
