Moments after a judge freed him, a drug dealer punched a 65 year-old Philadelphia woman, stole her car, and drove off with her one-year-old grandson in the back seat, according to county Park Police Chief Kirk Nolan.

The suspect had pleaded guilty to drug-dealing in July of 2017, served time, then had his parole revoked, before being released from the Hempfield Township jail Tuesday, stealing the vehicle and getting arrested an hour later, the Tribune-Review reports:

“Moments after Thomas Lee Williams, 36, was released from the Hempfield jail at about 6:15 p.m., police said he attacked a West Leechburg woman in the parking lot, took her sport-utility vehicle and fled with her 1-year-old grandson in the back seat.

“Williams crashed 2 miles away in Youngwood about 15 minutes later, ran into a wooded area and was eventually apprehended, according to county Park Police Chief Kirk Nolan.”

Williams was returned to jail on $250,000 bail and faces charges of:

  • Kidnapping,
  • Robbery of a vehicle, and
  • Aggrevated assualt (two counts)
