SELLERSBURG, IN (WAVE) – Just a couple days after an 85-year-old woman is carjacked at a Cracker Barrel, police found the stolen vehicle and named a suspect in the case.
Investigators are searching for Malachi Looney, 33, of Sellersburg, in connection to the case.
Police found the 2001 Buick Century at the Court Avenue Thorntons on Court in Jeffersonville Wednesday morning. It was towed to the Indiana State Police post in Sellersburg and was searched for new evidence.
"He's a coward, he preyed on the elderly and his day will come," Sellersburg Police Chief Russ Whelan said of the suspect.
Whelan said they are one step closer to catching the man caught on camera stealing the woman's car. The incident happened Monday right after she pulled into Cracker Barrel in Sellersburg.
"She was very shaken up at the time and her wrists both, he didn't throw her to the ground, but when he grabbed her, she's 85, and when he grabbed her wrists, both are really swollen and bruised," Whelan said.
