Male Pretends to Need Help, Steals Good Samaritan’s Car

A Guelph male faces several charges after a female had her car stolen while trying to assist someone she thought was in distress.

Saturday morning, just after 6 a.m., a female was in her car at an Elmira Road North business when a male approached and seemed to be in distress. The female exited her vehicle to help but the male became aggressive and made a threatening gesture. The female ran to a friend’s car and the male initially began following, then got into the victim’s car and drove away, narrowly missing the victim and driving over a curb and grassy area to leave the parking lot.

He was pulled over a short time later and police detected an odour of alcoholic beverage on his breath. He was arrested and transported to the police station where he refused to comply with a breath demand.

A 38-year-old Guelph male is charged with theft of motor vehicle, dangerous driving, impaired driving, failing to stop at a collision and refusing to provide a breath sample. His driver’s license was suspended for 90 days. He will appear in court November 24.
