Violent carjacking in Guildford

A Good Samaritan who tried to intervene was struck by the stolen car.

A woman was violently accosted in a retail parking lot in Guildford this week as her attacker tried to steal her car.

The woman was attacked at her car in a parking lot in the 9000-block of 152 Street on Monday. The suspect, a man in his 50s, managed to steal the woman’s keys and then take the car.

The woman who was attacked was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The Good Samaritan was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
