Channel 2’s Candace McCowan spoke to a neighbor who said there were four people inside a white car.

He said one got out to deliver a pizza, then he heard crying and saw the little girl running for her mother.

“These guys, I don’t know what they’re doing. She’s just looking at them, so I think they’re making fun of her, laughing at her or something,” Nick Patel said.

Henry County police did track down the car involved and said a 16-year-old is charged with simple battery.

We also reached out to DoorDash who said in part:

“To be clear – this individual was not a Dasher and we have deactivated the account that was wrongly used.”
