Police are investigating after a 10-year-old boy was injured when he was pushed out of his mother's vehicle during a carjacking.

The incident happened at Marathon Gas Station, 2780 E. 116th Street on Nov. 18. 

According to a police report, the boy's mother left him in the car while it was running to go pay for gas. When she turned around she saw an unknown person driving away in her vehicle. One of the suspects pushed the 10-year-old out of the moving vehicle causing him to fall and hit his head.

The boy was taken to Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital and treated for a head injury.

The driver of the vehicle is described as standing about 5-foot-7 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds. He was wearing a navy blue puffy coat with a gray hooded sweatshirt underneath and a black skull cap.

The person who pushed the boy out of the car is described as a light-skinned black male, standing about 6-foot-1 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds. He was wearing a black puffy coat, gray hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and black boots.

According to the gas station attendant, the same group of individuals stole another car earlier in the week.

The incident is under investigation.
