Jesus Cepeda was crossing East 44th Street near Second Avenue when a 57-year-old man began reversing his 2011 Ford Escape.
Apparently the guy didn't want the SUV driver taking down his license plate number.
The SUV was found a few miles away.

They were on their way to church, according to reports.

After stealing the car on a Sunday, the vehicle was recovered the following day. So he went to get it back.
