An Oklahoma City teenager is in the hospital after being run over by a group of people in a southwest Oklahoma City apartment complex.

Just after 4 a.m. Wednesday, a 16-year-old boy was ran over by the suspects after he saw them trying to break into multiple vehicles at an apartment complex at SW 44 and Santa Fe Avenue

Police are searching for the group of four teenagers.

Ramona Delgado did not want to show her face, but had no problem showing News 9 her injuries.

She, her husband and her 16-year-old son Luciano tried to stop the four teenagers from breaking into cars in their apartment complex parking lot, when one of them ran over her son multiple times in their attempt to get away.

“I don't know if I moved or she bumped me in the car. I just saw my son go under the car,” said Delgado.

Delgado said her son heard someone break out a car window and woke up the family so they could investigate.

But instead of the thieves just making a break for it, they chose to fight back.

Delgado said she tried to grab on the suspects’ car to stop them but could not hold on.

That same car is the one that ran over her son multiple times.

She said her son is scheduled for surgery Thursday and has a broken hip, fractured pelvis, broken leg and numerous cuts and abrasions.

“It’s a kid attacking another kid,” said Delgado. “He's protecting his house. You going to try to kill him?”

Though the complex does have security cameras, a manager told News 9 they weren't rolling Wednesday morning. Now, this mother is just praying someone knows the people who hurt her and her son and are willing to turn them in.

“I mean it’s my baby,” said Delgado. “You're hurting my son. you came to his home.”

Police said the suspects are driving a 2016 Jeep Patriot, dark in color, but they think it could be stolen.
