A 30-year-old Michigan man was carjacked in a suburb outside of Detroit by an armed group of fake police during the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The father of six, Durrell Foster, said he survived the 3 a.m. mugging for one simple reason: he’s a dad.
“I got babies. I got daughters…I just kept telling him I got a daughter”
“I am not going to do nothing to you,” one of the armed men said to Foster in response to his pleas to keep himself alive for his children.

The four criminals that posed as cops left with Foster’s 2006 Porsche Cayenne as well as his Air Jordan’s, pants and belt.
According to Foster, he was on an early morning gas station run when the unidentified men pulled up next to him. At the time, Foster believed the criminals were police officers.
“I just thought it was the police. When I rolled down the window they put their light out the window. I rolled down my window to see what was going on and they had a rifle on the side of the flashlight.”
There were also police lights inside of the windshield, the victim told WDIV-TV Detroit.
At the end of the day, the young man stresses that, “I’m alright. I’m alright. I don’t care about any of that material stuff…”
