Police say the man who died had tried on Thursday to steal a woman's vehicle with her three young children inside. The children's mother was inside the restaurant, talking with the father of two of the kids.

At around 9 p.m. on Thursday night in Philadelphia, a 25-year-old woman drove her child - and both of her boyfriend's children - to the pizza place where her partner worked.

He told WPVI: 'They [parents] were able to pull this auto thief out of the vehicle.

The couple were able to catch up to the 54-year-old carjacker after he got stuck in traffic.

Police say that they are continuing to investigate and are trying to track down the other males involved in the assault, reported CBS, which was captured by a nearby surveillance camera. She left the auto running as she went in to speak to the dad, and that's when a 54-year-old, apparent career criminal, identified by police as Eric Hood, stole the vehicle, speeding off with the kids inside. He only got about a half block away before dad ran him down again.
