Derrieon Deshawn Nora (30), was walking on West Rossi Street trying to stop vehicles. He was almost successful in stopping one car but the driver drove away. Nora managed to stop a vehicle occupied by a 52-year-old woman and her Pomeranian dog. Nora stepped up on the vehicle's side rail, leaned in the window, and opened the driver side door telling the driver, 'I need your car somebody is trying to kill me.” Nora pulled the 52-year-old woman out by the hair onto the street. Nora put the vehicle in reverse and backed up into a truck behind him and fled in the vehicle at a high rate of speed. An officer spotted the vehicle on West Market Street at Riker Street and Nora was taken into custody in a high-risk vehicle stop. The Pomeranian was reunited with the owner. Nora was booked into County Jail for carjacking, parole violation, hit and run, and a felony warrant.
