Pensioner attacked in Birmingham refuses to hand over car keys

A pensioner was assaulted in an attempted car-jacking in Birmingham but refused to hand over his keys.

Three men with an imitation firearm forced Anthony Mathers, 75, to get out of his car in Roberts Road in Acocks Green.

But they drove for "a matter of yards" before stalling on Oxford Road, police said.

Mr Mathers confronted the thieves and was assaulted and pushed to the floor, but refused to hand over the keys.

A 17-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of robbery.
