A 60-year-old man has been run over after would-be thieves tried to steal his car in Melbourne’s north.

The victim left his car idling and door open while he withdrew cash from an ATM in Somerton Road, Roxburgh Park, shortly before 6am on August 24.

A Mercedes-Benz then pulled up, and a man got out and jumped behind the wheel of the victim’s car.

The opportunistic thief was reversing when the car’s owner returned to the vehicle and intervened.

The victim, from Greenvale, was knocked to the ground and run over by his own car.

He was also pinned under the car for a short time before the offenders drove a short distance away.

The offender then fled the scene in the Mercedes-Benz.

Leading Senior Constable Julie-Anne Newman said the victim suffered lacerations to his leg and was taken to hospital, but escaped serious injury.

Detectives have released CCTV vision showing the offender getting into the stolen vehicle and reversing.

One of the men involved is said to be of Middle Eastern appearance with a medium build.

He was wearing a grey and black hoodie, black scarf and black track-suit pants with red writing down the right leg.
