Police have released CCTV footage of a man stealing a car from a woman who had stopped to drop clothes into a charity bin on Allied Drive in Arundel on Wednesday July 18.
As the man jumped into the vehicle, the 53-year old tried to stop him from taking off in her car but was knocked to the ground as he drove off. She was treated at the scene for shock.
The car has since been located, found abandoned on Blyth Street in Arundel yesterday.
Police are appealing for anyone with information on the incident or the identity of the man to get in contact.
He's described as Pacific Islander in appearance with a proportionate build, and was wearing a dark blue jacket with jeans and a dark coloured cap.
