Investigators have been told a 47-year-old man heard a noise in his house just after 4am on 25 September.

He went downstairs and saw a man in his Jeep Cherokee, starting up the vehicle.

The owner tried to open the driver’s side door but the offender continued to drive away.

The owner fell underneath the car and was run over by the rear driver’s side wheel.

The offender drove off and left the victim in his driveway on Riddell Road with serious injuries including broken ribs, a fractured femur and leg wounds.

The white Jeep was seen on Old Lancefield Road near Savages Lane in Woodend about 4.50am.
