high beams

Social media is being used to warn people about a new danger to drivers that criminals are using in store parking lots.

A South Carolina woman was parked in her car when two men parked their car right in front of hers. Then they turned on their high beams. Her friend posted about the incident and it quickly gained attention.

The friend wanted to stay anonymous when she spoke with Charlotte NBC. She was afraid for her own safety after what her friend experienced.

“Someone turned on their high beams and she looked up and she can’t really see anything,” the victim’s friend told NBC Charlotte. She asked her identity to remain protected for her safety.

“And then of a sudden, she heard two men on both sides of her car, the passenger and the driver side,” she said. “As she was pulling away they were still trying to get in her car they were wearing hoodies and they had the hoodie part down past their eyes. Thankfully she locked her doors. It was just too close to home and I wanted people to be aware.”

“Who knows what would’ve happened if they had gotten her car and she didn’t lock the doors?”

Rockville, SC Police Department got wind of the situation and decided to ask some questions since this was not reported. They were concerned this might be part of a larger problem and stressed the importance of contacting police about these sort of events, even when you are able to get away.
