AURORA, Ill. – Surveillance footage shows what happened when an 11-year-old girl jumped out of the backseat of a moving car to get away from the man stealing it.

While Aurora Police search for the accomplice of that carjacking, they pass along this advice - you can't leave the car running while you get out to pump gas!

It was early Friday morning when Mark Beasanski of Aurora, Illinois was going to pump gas at the BP gas station on North Eola Road, according to WGN.

Security footage shows a man get into the Jeep Cherokee from the passenger side of a Dodge Charger and begin to drive off with 11-year-Kayla in the backseat.

Moments later the girl can be seen jumping out of the car and then father and daughter embrace.

Aurora police sent out word to be on the lookout for the stolen Jeep and about an hour later, the Illinois State Police spotted the stolen Jeep Cherokee.

A 20-year-old Chicago man, Tyrelle Pulley was arrested and charged in what is Aurora's first carjacking this year.

While authorities continue to look for Pulley's accomplice, they offer this advice: Don’t make it easy on the bad guys.

“This is really sad to say about society today although he turned the vehicle off you have to take the opportunity away from a brazen criminal to do something like this. It's an opportunity for thieves,” Dan Ferrelli, police spokesperson, said.
