SACRAMENTO, CA - A carjacking suspect was arrested Friday evening after the victim fought back.
A man and his wife were sitting in her car, with the engine running, on the 5400 block of Fruitridge Road around 5:19 p.m. when a suspect tried to steal the car, Sacramento police said.
The suspect reached into the car and grabbed the keys; however, the husband, who was sitting in the passenger's seat, intervened. The suspect then punched the husband multiple times, causing minor injuries.
Police said the husband was eventually able to hold the suspect down until a nearby Sacramento County sheriff's deputy arrived.
Delarin Butler, 34, was arrested and booked into Sacramento County Jail for attempted carjacking, police said.
