The Brisbane mother, Amy Chu was left traumatized by the incident after she fought to protect her baby when a man tried to steal her car with her child still inside.

Ronald Kristian Bradley, who is behind bars now, had allegedly hidden in her granny flat for hours after an earlier, unsuccessful attempt to steal her car. He had waited for Chu to return home after picking her daughter up from school. She noticed her car doors were slightly open so she strapped her 12-month-old Banjo in and when she lifted her head, she found a man standing there, with a metal vacuum hose aimed at her.

Bradley then demanded her car keys, fearing for her child, she tried to distract him and refused to give him the keys when he allegedly started hitting her

I could not give up, my baby is there, he might drive my car away. I have to fight for my baby.

I think this is just a mother’s instinct, to protect your children.

This is when Samu Kerevi, who was a passenger in a moving vehicle, jumped out as he saw what was happening and went to her aid.

She was just screaming ‘help, help’. I looked into her eyes and I could see fear.

I told him to get off her and grabbed her and shielded her away from him.

Kerevi then grabbed the baby. The alleged attacker walked back into Ms Chu’s property. Bradley then allegedly broke into another home before being caught.

Ms Chu is just thankful he is now behind bars. And thankful to those who helped her.

They saved Banjo’s life and my life.
