A hard-working Detroit mother of three was recently robbed of her only transportation.

Armed with a tow truck, the criminals went car hunting on the city's east side, and now, they're hiding from police.

In the video obtained only by 7 Action News, two men hooked up the 1992 Pontiac Bonneville to the tow truck in the parking lot of a McDonald's at 7 Mile and Gratiot.

Police eventually found the tow truck hours later, but it was completely torched. Now, Kaniesha has no way to get her kids around.

You can see the surveillance video above, and if you have any information, please call Detroit police.
