LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

An elderly woman in Little Rock was car-jacked in front of her home.

It happened Thursday morning in southwest Little Rock.

Geraldine Garrett said a man approached her when she got out of her car. He had a gun and demanded money.

In an interview with KARK-TV, Garrett said she thought about stopping him.  

"I thought about trying to tackle him, but I'm not too strong myself," Garrett told KARK-TV. "He was a tiny little guy and I might could have knocked him down."

Garrett said she’s glad to be alive.
