Lori Harvey came dangerously close to being car jacked this weekend. Luckily, her quick thinking prevented something much worse from happening.
Lori, the daughter of Steve Harvey, had just parked her 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan at an apartment complex in Atlanta Wednesday night. As she made her way to the trunk to grab some things, the suspect crept up and ran to jump in the driver's seat.
According to the police report, Lori told cops the suspect was a young black guy who tried to steal her ride. We’re told Lori actually ran toward him and struggled with him as he was sitting in the SUV, but he pushed her away.
Lori told cops that's when she realized she could just walk away with the key fob to thwart the attempted auto theft (because it can't be put in drive without it). We’re told she simply walked away nonchalantly.
As she did, a second suspect pulled up in a getaway car, hopped out, ran to the back of her Rolls and grabbed a red duffel bag. Both he and the first suspect jumped in their vehicle and fled.
The duffel bag was filled with clothing, so they didn't get away with much. Harvey was coming from Whole Foods and investigators will be checking those cameras.
