A mother and her two daughters are still shaken up about what happened to them at a Detroit park on August 21.

The 33-year-old mother, who didn't want to be identified, told us she was at Delray Park in southwest Detroit watching soccer games with her eight and nine-year-old daughters.

As they walked back to their car, police say a man seen caught later on surveillance video, carjacked the family at gunpoint.

She told us, "If he was a father and this happened in front of his kids, how would he feel?"

He took off with her purse and Cadillac Escalade. Investigators say he was seen shortly after using her stolen bank card at a gas station, after hopping out of the stolen vehicle.

If you know this man, or have any information on this case, Detroit Police want to hear from you.
