“It was Friday morning,” recalled Tarfin.
The morning of Jan. 14, police said a man walked into the shop and began making casual conversation with Tarfin while he was working on a red Cadillac CTS.
“He said that he liked that car, I said, ‘Yes I’m working on it,'” Tarfin recalled.
Then, as Tarfin backed away to check diagnostic readings, he said the suspect jumped into the driver’s seat.
“He locked the door, and then I tried to get the key out from the car and that’s when he punched me,” Tarfin said.
He was knocked unconscious, but his body was still hanging inside the driver’s window
