Police said a man arrested twice in two weeks for having stolen cars nearly ran over the first victim.

They said Quanderian Pleasant was out on bond from the first case, when the second one happened.

Jennifer Stephens had a friend spending the night and they had no idea at the time, but they say Pleasant stole the friend’s car and jet ski parked in the driveway during the night. They discovered it the next morning when she said Pleasant came back to her house to steal her car too.

Stephens says Pleasant brought back the first car with the jet ski then jumped into Jennifer’s car and when Pleasant was trying to make his get-away, he slammed into the jet ski trailer and nearly missed running over Jennifer’s friend by inches.

Stephens said she was shocked to see Pleasant in her driveway with her car running and the door open.

 “I open my garage door and see my car door is open and someone is standing there looking at me,” said Stephens. “I said what are you doing and he just kind of looked at me and said what?”

After nearly running over Jennifer’s friend, she said Pleasant took off in her car but ditched it down the street and police arrested him a few hours later.

He was released on bond and police arrested Pleasant again, this week, for driving a stolen car, leading police on a chase and crashing into someone’s garage.

 “Ten days later he backs out and it’s escalated. So, what’s next,” said Stephens. “Now, he’s plowing through someone’s house what’s going to be next? Is someone going to die? Is someone going to get seriously injured?”

Stephens said the trailer is totaled and the jet ski and car are damaged and while she’s thankful no one was hurt; she now feels like she’s living on edge.

“I’ve always felt that this neighborhood was very safe, I’ve never had any problems and then you snap your fingers, and someone is standing in your driveway and now I’m not safe and that’s a horrible feeling,” said Stephens.

Right now, Pleasant is in the Tulsa County jail for several new charges in addition to the charges from Jennifer’s case.
