Horse Carriage-Jacking in St. Louis Foiled by U.S. Army, Horse
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A man police say attacked the driver of a horse-drawn carriage and took control of the reins in downtown St. Louis on Tuesday night was foiled when the horse instinctively ran back to its barn.
On Wednesday, police said they had arrested a man in a rare case of horse carriage-jacking.
The St. Louis Carriage Company driver, Larry Turner, told the Post-Dispatch he was steering his horse, Harry, back to the St. Louis Carriage Company's stables about 8:25 p.m. toward the end of his shift. That's when Turner spotted a man sitting on some steps, staring at the carriage as he rolled past.
The man's glare made Turner nervous.
"I can remember his eyes, they were just like a wild animal," said Turner, 60, of Granite City.
According to Turner and police, the man, 40, suddenly rushed the carriage and tried to jump on after Turner turned south on Eighth Street. Turner said he slapped Harry into a gallop but the man caught up and climbed aboard.
