OKLAHOMA CITY -

On Friday night, Jessica Garrison and her 8-month-old baby Isabella had been showing off her Snow White costume at a Halloween event.

When they got to their home along North Harvard Avenue, the mother felt the worst fear of her life as two men stole her vehicle with Isabella in the back.

While Garrison went up to her home, she said she left the vehicle running with the baby in it and her pregnant sister was standing next to the passenger side, but two men charged at the vehicle and muscled their way into the car. Garrison ran after them.

“I screamed. I said, ‘My baby is in the car, please just let my daughter go! You can have the car,’” she explained.

But police said the men dragged her as they drove and hit her trying to break her grip.

“I was going to go where they were going to take the car, but I couldn’t hold on. I tried, I just couldn’t,” she said.

Police said the men may have been involved in an armed robbery at a nearby Family Dollar minutes before the carjacking – as both suspects matched the description given at that scene.

“It’s the worst feeling ever watching somebody drive off with your daughter, not knowing who it is or what they’re going to do to her,” she said.

The suspects abandoned the car near NW 12 and Purdue and the baby in the car seat near NW 16 and Purdue, according to police.

Oklahoma City police officer Josh Norton found Isabella relatively unharmed in a grassy area near a parking lot. After such an agonizing hour apart, Garrison and her baby were together again.

“She was crying and then she looked at me she just gets this big smile on her face and then when she comes to me she stops crying,” Garrison explained. “It was the best feeling in the world.”

The report said the suspects were described as two black males both around 20 years old, 6 feet tall, 145 pounds, wearing dark jeans and hoodies.

Both had black hair, but one had a small Afro with blonde in it, according to the report.

“I am exhausted emotionally, physically. I can’t sleep. It’s hard to eat. I’ll feel a lot better once these people are found,” Garrison told News 9.

Anyone with information about the incident is called Call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
