Good Samaritan hit with stolen car in Surrey

Around 1:30 p.m., police say a woman was being “accosted” by a man in a strip mall in the 9000-block of 152nd Street. The suspect, a man in his 50s, grabbed the woman’s keys and took off in her car.

Another man saw this happening and tried to intervene, when the suspect hit him with the stolen car, police say.

An off-duty officer saw the stolen car take off. Police found the car 12 blocks away and arrested the man.

Both the woman and the Good Samaritan were take to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“Even when in busy public areas, always be aware of your surroundings. Keep your head up and look alert,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
