BALTIMORE  — A 63-year-old woman suffered minor injuries after attempting to stop her car from getting carjacked Tuesday morning.

Around 8:45 a.m., officers responded to the 1900 block of Belair Road for an unarmed robbery.

When they arrived, they found the victim who said she was on the gas station lot when a suspect jumped into her running vehicle.

Police say the victim began to fight with the suspect that took off in the vehicle while dragging the victim.

She was taken to the hospital and sustained minor injuries.

The vehicle is listed as a blue 2019 Kia Rio.

Surveillance footage captured from a business nearby shows the woman driving the blue Kia pull into the gas station.

The woman then hopped out of the car and left it running while standing a few feet away.

A few moments later, one of the people standing around the car jumps in and tried to take off before that woman goes after them.

“Old lady got out of our car to go to the gas station attendant window, and they jumped in her car and try to steal her car," said a man who didn't want to be identified. "She ran and grabbed the steering wheel and they dragged her and ran her over and they kept on going."

Moments later, the video shows an ambulance pull up to help treat that woman.

Police say the suspect was described as a 5'6 Black man, wearing a white shirt, blue jeans and gray New Balance shoes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Central District Shooting detectives at 410-396-2433.
