In his first television interview, the 26-year-old Chinese entrepreneur, who asked CBS News to conceal his identity and calls himself “Danny,” sits down with CBS News Senior Correspondent John Miller and describes the terrifying night when he was carjacked by Boston bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The report will be broadcast tonight, April 30 on the CBS EVENING NEWS WITH SCOTT PELLEY (6:30-7:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.
Danny tells Miller that soon after he pulled over to send a text message, Tamerlan approached his car with a gun and jumped inside.
“He asked me a question like, ‘do you know the Boston explosion on Monday?’” Danny tells Miller. “I said yes. He said ‘you know I did that, and I just killed a policeman in Cambridge.’”
Danny also describes how he escaped from the car to a gas station, where he called 911.
