DETROIT – A 15-year-old boy turned himself in to police this week after assaulting a woman and stealing her car earlier this month when they met up after connecting on a dating app.
The teen turned himself in to Detroit Police on Tuesday, Dec. 29, shortly after the story was released to local news outlets, FOX 2 Detroit reports.

On Dec. 2, the woman picked up the teen whom she’d met online and another male suspect to hang out, police said. She was eventually asked to pull over. When she did, the suspect in the front seat punched her in the face and slammed her face against the window. That suspect then told the person in the backseat to get her out of the vehicle. She was thrown to the ground and began running from the vehicle. One of the suspects threw her purse out before they drove away, police said. The vehicle was found the following day.
Police have not released the name of the juvenile suspect, the TV station reports.
