Car Owner Nearly Run Over During Guelph Auto Theft

A Guelph man has been arrested on several charges after another man was almost run over by his own vehicle while it was being stolen.

Last October 17, just after 3:30 a.m., the victim had left his vehicle running outside his downtown business while he went inside to get something. He noticed someone getting into the car and ran outside, jumping on the hood as the suspect quickly reversed. The suspect drove forward and made a quick turn, causing the victim to fall to the road and narrowly avoid being run over.


Approximately seven hours later the vehicle was stopped by police in Perth County and the driver was arrested. Earlier this week he was arrested on the Guelph charges and returned for court.

A 33-year-old Guelph man is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving, driving while prohibited, breaching an undertaking, four counts of breaching probation and several Highway Traffic Act offences. He remains in custody and will appear in court March 5.
