    Angry Car jacking attempt...

    Off I go to get the Friday night treat from McDonalds… on the way back home pulled up at the lights.

    This is around 8pm.. From my right I saw an ethnic chap in a jogging top, walking up the opposite side of the road towards me. Didnt even get a look at him or what else he was wearing.
    Next second I see him running towards my open window?! Quickly hit the window up button, his hand is in the car, window comes back down, as they do.

    Next bit is all a blur really, grabbed his wrist, pinned it against the dash and started driving off.. I have no idea if the lights were red, green or what the hell they were.. ‘Nah man! Nah man!… let me go!’ the little **** shouts…. I remember saying something like .. ‘Don’t **** with me then!!!’
    I have no idea what possessed me to grab his arm at all, or what good it would do or anything!?
    Got to like 20 mph and let go kept driving in 1st for what seemed ages lol … need to get tracking etc checked now as I hit speed bumps at Christ knows what speed!

    I’m just glad I have the car set to lock all doors after driving over 5mph as they were all locked, otherwise im sure it would be a different story.

    Im so uptight and shaking at the minute... i ache all over with either anger or shock.. bath time me thinks

    Reported it to the Police, don’t expect anything to be done.. just that if I read a report or saw on local TV someone had been car jacked.. stabbed.. beaten etc in the same area for their car I would have felt so bad
    Police said they would send a car through the area on and off to keep an eye on things at the set of lights.

    Rant over!

    christ mate, glad your ok, you never know what he could have had in his hand. What happened to him after you stopped the car after driving off with him presumably hanging out of your window? Did he just run off and you just carried on driving?

    Pretty brave of you to do what you did, If that were me id probably let them have the car. At the end of the day its just a car, your lifes more important.

    Nice one for reporting it BTW. Hope youve calmed down and had a brandy or 2 for the shock

    JESUS! I hope you are OK mate. Very serious stuff and I would expect quite alot from local plod if I were you! CID would be good, I take it it was a built up area, any CCTV near?

    I think I would've done the same thing if it were me, especially if my family were in the car!
