A food delivery man was injured when he was dragged as two people stole his vehicle in Wallingford on Tuesday afternoon and police are looking for those responsible.
Officers responded to Chimney Hill Road just after 4.30pm to investigate a report of a suspicious vehicle and found an older black Honda Accord with dark tinted windows and a white bin bag covering its number plate .
Officers attempted to stop the Honda, but the driver accelerated, police said.
Shortly after, officers returned to the Chimney Hill Road and Sullivan Avenue area to investigate a carjacking.
The victim has cuts to the head, knee and foot and medical personnel treated him at the scene.
Police learned the victim was delivering food in the area when two men confronted him. They tried to take his Nissan Rouge and the victim was dragged about 500 feet, police said.
One of the car thieves had something in his hand, police said, but the victim was so upset he couldn’t tell what it was.
Police found the Nissan Rogue shortly afterwards in Meriden.
Police have released a photo of the Honda and are asking anyone who sees the vehicle or recognizes it to call Det. Sterback at (203) 294-2856.
Wallingford Police are urging the public to report any suspicious activity if you see any. They urge people who work in delivery services to be cautious and skip a fare or delivery when you notice something suspicious rather than take a risk.
