The sheriff’s office described the suspect vehicle as a four-door, older model in a light color, adding, “The suspect vehicle was last seen going northbound on K-14 Hwy.”

Authorities also asked for citizens’ help regarding similar instances and said the investigation was ongoing.

Most voters believe “crime is getting worse in America”; 83 percent think it will turn out to be one of the main issues during the midterm elections, a Rasmussen Reports poll in February found.

“Women are slightly more concerned than men about crime — 70 percent of women and 60 percent of men say violent crime is getting worse. Women are also more likely to think crime will be a top priority in congressional elections,” according to Breitbart News.
