Singer Akon was the victim of a cat theft incident on Monday, May 24, while pumping gas at an Atlanta, US, petrol station.
According to New York Post, the musician left his keys on his white Range Rover SUV ignition and went to fuel on the opposite side at Quiktrip gas station in Buckhead, Atlanta.
Akon was on the passenger side of the car and saw someone getting into the driver’s seat before they took off, leaving him stranded at the station at midnight.
This was just about when he was nearly filling his tank and the suspect, a black male, was spotted getting out of another vehicle before getting into his.
Akon said he saw his SUV and the other ride, a BMW sedan, take off simultaneously and realised things were not okay.
According to Atlanta police, it only takes a second for someone to jump into another person’s car and take off, something that has become a norm.
Luckily, the 48-year-old was not hurt, and his phone was still in the car, which he used to track the car twice in two different locations, and it was finally found by police early Tuesday.
