We are appealing for witnesses to an incident that took place in Sheffield yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 4 January).

Officers were called to Handsworth Road in Handsworth at around 2pm to reports of a collision between a black Volkswagen Golf and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a man in his fifties, had left his car while entering a shop. An unknown man then reportedly entered the Golf and tried to drive off with it. Upon trying to stop him, the pedestrian has been dragged along the carriageway and suffered serious injuries. He was later transported to hospital where treatment is continuing.

The driver of the Golf fled the scene in the vehicle by turning left into Fitzalan Road. The Golf itself has not yet been found.

Officers wish to speak to anyone who might have been in the area at the time and saw who heard anything suspicious, has CCTV which captured the incident or who was driving past and caught the incident on dash cam.

Anyone with information which could assist with our enquiries is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 383 of 4 January.

Alternatively, you can stay completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.
