Motorist Bounces Off Bonnet As Car Is Stolen

A motorist was hurled across his bonnet as he tried to stop a thief stealing his car last night.

The man had left the engine of his red Vauxhall Astra running last night in Portland Street, Leamington at 9.30pm.

He looked around and saw that a man was sitting inside. He rushed back to the car but it was driven off.

The owner was sent flying across the bonnet and landed in the road. He suffered cuts and bruises but did not need hospital treatment.

About half an hour the car was found at the Sainsbury’s car park in Kenilworth.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of aggravated taking of vehicle, driving while disqualified, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance.

He was bailed by police pending further enquiries.
