Neighbors React After Child Tossed from Truck

Local police are still looking for the men who threw a two-year-old boy out the window of a truck. It happened yesterday when parole officers were trying to serve a warrant.

And now some neighbors are speaking out about what they saw. Some people in the neighborhood say they saw some people arguing, but never thought a toddler would soon be in danger.

There are too many questions and not enough answers for neighbors. Diedra Boyd and her son Marcus live across the street from the home where police went to serve an arrest warrant Tuesday.

Marcus says before police arrived, he was walking back from the store and noticed some people arguing.

"I was walking a little slowly, but I was looking back then all of a sudden I saw somebody jerk a baby then some truck pulled off," he told us.

Thinking a couple was just having an argument, he went home. He never once thought the people driving the truck would throw the little boy out of the window, on to the side of the road.

"I seen everybody starting to pull up, all the police and stuff, so I started sitting on the porch wondering what was going on," Marcus said. "And then later on that night somebody had stolen a truck."

After hearing such an unspeakable act had been committed in their neighborhood, the Boyd family says unfortunately bad things happen there a lot. "It's rough," Diedra said. "Since I've been here, I've been burglarized three times. Three times. Every time I talk to people, nobody's seen nothing. It's rough."

The two-year-old received a few scratches. He was released from the hospital last night, but police are still looking for the people responsible.
