A motorist was dragged along by his car when he was the victim of a carjacking.

The 51-year-old driver was on his way to work and called at the Texaco petrol station, Stratford Road, Sparkbrook, in Birmingham.

He was approached by a man asking for a lift and when he refused he was punched several times.

The thief managed to take the keys to the Black VW Golf and drove away, dragging the victim alongside the car.

The car owner suffered minor injuries. Police are appealing for information following the release of CCTV footage of the Christmas Day incident.
