Mom Pippa Anne-Malcolm has revealed how she saw a stranger get into the front seat of her car – while her autistic son, nine, sat inside.

The dramatic ordeal happened at the BP gas station on the A2 in Whitfield, Kent, at around 7:30 a.m. yesterday.

After hearing her son’s screams, she rushed from the store to her car, fearing for his safety.

Onlookers ran to help the boy and solved the problem by addressing the unknown man.

Footage shows a man screaming as he is pressed against the concrete floor.

The brave group of drivers tied his hands behind his back when another person alerted the police.

One woman, wearing a McDonald’s high-visibility jacket, was seen clipping the loose ends of cables.

The man then overturned and sat leaning against a pumping station.

Police confirmed that they arrested a man after causing a disturbance – and he remains in custody.

Ms Malcolm said the incident was “the scariest thing” she had ever experienced.

Talking to KentOnline, she said: “I was in the store and ran out to get my son out of the car. The man was in my driver’s seat.

“I took my son outside and shouted for help. My son is nine years old and has autism.

“He sat there, watching me pull my son out of the car while I called for help.

“I don’t know what he wants. He doesn’t talk to me or my son.

“It’s terrifying, to be honest, I’ve never felt so scared.”

Since then, she has been sharing messages of thanks on social media to everyone who has helped her.

MOTHER’S MOTHER

She said: “I just want to thank the scaffolders who helped me and my son this morning. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced.

“Luckily my son is okay.

“Thank you to everyone who checked on us while we waited for the police and offered to assist us.

“You are all truly heroes and we can never thank you enough.”

One woman who witnessed the ordeal, Tracy Squire, said: “All these men jumped on him. They thought very quickly.

“They pinned him down and tied a cable to him. I just thought the men were superheroes.”

A police spokesman said: “Kent police were called at 7:42am on Tuesday 7 December 2021 to reports of a disturbance in Dover Road, Whitfield.

“During the incident, a man is said to have entered a stopped vehicle before he was overpowered by several members of the public.

“Officers attended the scene and arrested a man in his 50s on suspicion of intent to steal a motor vehicle.

“He remains in custody as investigations continue.”
