A man in his car on Newtowne Drive was carjacked in broad daylight Thursday. His car was found later in the afternoon a block away from where it was taken.
Officials say the man was sitting in his vehicle waiting for a friend when two people approached him, opened the passenger's door and removed the keys from the ignition. The man reportedly attempted to fight back, but after being stuck in the face, he ran for safety.
According to a report provided by the Anne Arundel County Police Department, the two men then got in his vehicle and then attempted to run over him.
The vehicle was recovered at about 1:30 p.m.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610.
