Armed child carjacker caught on surveillance getting body slammed to the ground by would-be victim

This is the moment an underage armed carjacker squealed after being body slammed to the ground by a would-be victim who fought back. 

Surveillance footage caught the moment two kids, one armed, approached the burly man outside his home in San Leandro, California, last week.  

But the car owner immediately goes on the defensive and picks up the armed child before hurling him onto the road, sending his gun clattering across the ground. 

The would-be carjacking victim then kneels on the child who begins squealing while his accomplice yells 'let him go!' 

Afterwards, the visibly shaken children ran away and fled in a white Kia leaving the gun in the middle of the street. 

The boys and two other pals - all of them aged between 11 and 14 - embarked on a multi-day crime spree which also saw a bank customer and two other drivers targeted.

It began six hours before the boy was filmed being bodyslammed, when he and his accomplice tried to rob a customer at a nearby Chase bank. 

They fled empty-handed after their intended victim told them he was an off-duty police officer.  

Police were able to connect all the attempted robberies with multiple surveillance tapes and pieced together that the same getaway car was used in each incident, Kron 4 news reports.

Six hours prior to the filmed incident, the two boys also tried to rob a customer at gunpoint at a Chase bank in San Leandro but fled empty handed after their victim told them he was an off-duty police officer

Days after the filmed carjacking attempt, both suspects and a third underage boy were caught by police after attempting to carjack another victim in nearby Oakland.

Oakland Police found the trio driving the same white car captured in the body slam video, and later set them free. 

They were released to their guardians and are then said to have attempted yet another carjacking with a fourth pal three days after being freed, on April 19.

Police arrested the boys again, and have referred the cases to the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center for prosecution.
