New York, April 2 (ANI): Two women sped off in a police car right before the eyes of cops in Queens, say eyewitnesses.

According to the police, the incident took place on April 1 at around 3:00 p.m. at the corner of 230th Place and Mentone Avenue in Laurelton when two policemen asked a green minivan driver to stop as the car was reported stolen.

But the man jumped out of the car and started running. Cops followed him and soon cuffed him.

Meanwhile, the minivan's two women passengers, described as black and portly, quietly jumped into the police car that was parked with the engine running and lights flashing and sped off.

After riding for about a half-mile the women abandoned the car on 145th Avenue and 223 Street.

"She flew past the police and made left turn," the New York Post quoted an eyewitness, as saying.

The source added: "The cops were not paying attention. They immediately got on the radio and called for backup. You just don't expect this."

The women have still not been traced. (ANI)
