A Washington, D.C., teen was sent to the hospital Friday after he allegedly tried to carjack a grandma headed to chemotherapy.

The incident unfolded around 8:30 a.m., in the 22nd Street Southeast neighborhood, and involved a woman who declined to give her identity but is known around the neighborhood as “grandma,” WJLA reported.

“Grandma” was on her way to get chemotherapy when the 15-year-old boy tried to carjack her, WJLA reported.

“Next thing I know, he walked up talking about, ‘Give me your keys, I got a gun.’ I said, ‘Baby, you better shoot me, because you’re not taking my car.'” (RELATED: Man Reportedly Shoots And Kills Suspect Trying To Carjack His Girlfriend Outside Florida Bar)

“He pushed me to the door and I got up and grabbed him and was hitting his ass, and hitting him and fighting him and I said, ‘You not going to take my car, youngin.'”

“Grandma” said she started calling for help and neighbors rushed outside to come to her defense.

“They caught him and I said, ‘Oh, you going to jail today. You definitely going to jail, yes you are,” “Grandma” reportedly said.

The suspect was taken away from the scene in an ambulance, WJLA reported, citing police.

“And they said it’s a wonder he wasn’t dead,” “Grandma” told WJLA. “On 22nd Street? He must didn’t know where he was. Nobody has seen this boy before.”

There have been at least 82 carjackings this year alone and just 14 arrests, WJLA reported, citing police statistics.
