ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KTVI) -- An Overland woman, 79, was carjacked in her own driveway in the middle of the afternoon. Ian Little, 17, of Imperial, is jailed on a robbery charge. His alleged motive has police shaking their heads.
The carjacking happened Wednesday in a quiet neighborhood where it's common for residents to have lived for more than 50 years. There's never been a carjacking.
Little pulled his shirt up over his head as he walked up the victim's driveway, police said. She was getting ready to leave in her car.
