Fresno father arrested after carjacking a man in front of his 5-year-old son

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Fresno father is in jail accused of an armed carjacking in front of his five-year-old son.

Police said 29-year-old Myron Harris went to a man's home on Christmas day to ask about a Chevy truck with a for sale sign on it. The seller took Harris and his little boy on a test drive. They eventually went to the 7-Eleven near Clinton and Fruit to get a cashier's check but were turned down. That's when, officers said, Harris pulled out a knife and stole the truck with his son in the back seat.

Police caught him a short time later.

They gave the little boy Christmas gifts before turning him over to Child Protective Services.
