RIVERDALE - A south Fulton carjacking suspect is the focus of a manhunt after he allegedly stole a 2012 Jeep Wrangler with two young girls in the backseat.
Police tell News/Talk WSB the carjacking occurred around 7 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Halligan Point and Bethsaida Road in Riverdale.
A police report indicates the suspect forced a man out of the SUV even as he told the gunman his step-daughters were in the backseat. Jatura Sweeting, 6, and her sister Jayla, 5, were found safe in the abandoned SUV about an hour later on Ashington Court in College Park.
Investigators hope to question the step-father on Monday, in hopes of working up a composite sketch of the suspect.
According to the girls' mother, Diura Lasta, they slept through the entire ordeal.
