A grand jury in San Francisco has charged a man with 10 felonies in connection with the Feb. 6 carjacking of a delivery driver’s vehicle and kidnapping the driver’s two children who were inside.

German Morazan was indicted Wednesday in federal court on a dozen charges, including multiple counts of kidnapping, as well as carjacking and robbery.

Morazan, 27 at the time of his arrest, was taken into custody Feb. 17 and was the second suspect arrested in connection to the kidnapping. Erlin Romero, 25 at the time of his arrest, was apprehended Feb. 10.

The kidnapping happened as DoorDash worker Jeffery Fang was making a food delivery, leaving his car momentarily with the engine running in the 2100 block of Jackson Street, with his two children Winifred, 4, and Sean, 2, inside.

The children were eventually located hours later in the car, which was found abandoned in the Bayview District.

During the kidnapping San Franciscans rallied to try and help find Fang’s missing children by scouring social media and searching the streets. Afterwards people rallied and raised over $155,000 for the Fang family via a GoFundMe.
