The incident happened Monday afternoon in the Colton Avenue parking lot.
According to investigators, the woman was there to distribute meals to the homeless in the area.
While she was distributing food, police said 24-year-old Roberto Carlos Sanchez Jr. forcibly took the keys from the woman and got into the driver’s seat of her car.
Video released by police shows him driving away while the woman holds on to the driver’s door.
The woman fell to the ground but was unharmed.
Police said Sanchez was arrested Wednesday night after a Los Angeles police officer discovered the vehicle stolen from cars in a parking lot on the 500 block of E. 11th Street.
He was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle.
Sanchez was taken to the West Valley Detention Center in San Bernardino, where he is being held on $250,000 bail. He now faces charges of auto theft and elder abuse.
