Man Run Down In Plymouth
Police have launched an attempted murder investigation after a man was run down by a thief stealing his car.
The man had parked his car outside a shop in Melrose Avenue at around 7am while he went into a shop to buy a newspaper.
When he came out of the shop a man was in the process of stealing his car.
The victim is thought to have stood in the road and tried to stop the thief from driving away.
Unfortunately this has resulted in the victim ending up on the bonnet.
The car was driven away and the victim fell to the ground. Police know that the car was then driven along Arden Grove, Ham Drive, Outland Road and the Manadon Flyover before going through red lights at Derriford Roundabout.
It was last seen going past the George Hotel on the A386 Tavistock road at around 7:10am.
The victim, a 56-year-old Plymouth man, was taken to Derriford hospital where he has undergone surgery for serious head injuries. He also suffered broken ribs and a lung injury in the incident.
He remains in hospital at this time. Despite searches officers have yet to locate the suspect or the stolen car and are appealing for help from the public in finding it.
The car is a blue Vauxhall Astra LS 1.6 registration VN02EXV .
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5'10" tall and of medium build. Anyone seeing the vehicle is asked to please call police immediately using the 101 number quoting log 0128 090812.
