Police are looking for a man they said stole a woman's car before crashing it about a block away in the Central West End Tuesday morning.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police said the incident happened at around 6:30 Tuesday morning. They said a woman turned on her car at her home on the 4300 block of Delmar Boulevard then returned back inside the house. When she went back outside, she saw a man getting into the car and driving off.

Police said the man drove out of sight of the woman, but witnesses said the car drove up onto the curb near the intersection of Delmar and Whittier, less than a mile from the incident.

Witnesses told police the suspect jumped out of the car and ran off.

The investigation is ongoing.
