    Surveillance footage of a man suspected of stealing a Vallejo woman's car and then attacking her.

    A Vallejo woman on a mission to find the person she believes stole her mother's car and then ran over her has found some closure.

    The woman reported Sunday that a suspect has been arrested and that the car has been returned to her mother.

    Her 61-year-old mother's vehicle was taken from in front of their home last Tuesday. The victim spotted the car parked down the street the next night, only to be assaulted by a man and woman when she tried to take it back.

    "He locked the car door and caught my mom's shirt, and dragged my mom when he put the car in drive, and rolled over her as he U-turned and took off," said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of being targeted.

    She continued: "It's horrible somebody would run over my mother for something that's not even theirs. We just want him caught."

    The suspects were driving the stolen gray Honda Civic and trying to use the victim's credit cards all over the North and East bays last week.

    "They used her cards all day and went on a shopping spree," the woman said of her mother’s property. "They even washed the car as if it was their own."

    The woman uncovered surveillance video of the man she believed was responsible and posted it on social media and shared it with police.

    Police said last week, with the woman's help, they were confident that they would catch the suspects and were fairly certain they already knew who was behind the crimes.

    The victim's daughter said she doesn't want anyone else to be attacked.

    "My mom could have been killed for what? A couple thousand dollars. My mom's life is worth way more than that," she said.
