If A Car Parks In Front Of You With Their Brights On, Get Away Fast; Cops Have Dire Warning

With holiday shopping in full swing, there are more shoppers hitting up stores and malls. Rock Hill, South Carolina police have warned residents to watch out for a new way that criminals are attacking unsuspecting victims — and it involves using their car’s high beams. A Rock Hill resident told KREM that she experienced the criminal act in a Walmart parking lot, as a car pulled in front of her and put on its high beams. She recalled the scary incident, in which, blinded by the lights shining at her, the thieves exited their car and came to open her doors.
Since she had locked her car doors, their attempt was thwarted and she was able to drive away, but it was certainly a frightening turn of events.

A friend of the woman wrote about it on Facebook and the police investigated it after first believing it was a hoax. Turns out, it’s a very real tactic that criminals use.

“She heard two men on both sides of her car, the passenger and the driver side. As she was pulling away, they were still trying to get in her car. They were wearing hoodies, and they had the hoodie part down past their eyes. It was just too close to home, and I just wanted people to be aware.”

Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department told KREM that any incidents like this should be reported and not just written about on social media, explaining:

“If you ever feel like you’re in an unsafe situation, don’t think you’re bothering us. That’s what we’re here for, we’re here to help.”

The Police Department later followed up with this update to their Facebook post:

“We have confirmed that the incident described above actually happened, but the victim did not want to report it to law enforcement. The individual who responded to our post – created her post as a warning to others to be careful in shopping areas not only at Christmas Time, but all year round. Her co-worker was the one who had this incident happen to her. I have spoken with the posting individual by phone and we will get with Walmart and try to determine if we can identify the car.”
