A MAN fought bravely against thieves who were stealing his high-powered car.
The victim was at home in Clay Well at Golcar when he realised thieves had slipped in and snatched his car keys from the kitchen.
He heard the kitchen door slam at 7.30 last night and rushed outside.
Two thieves were sitting in his Mitsubishi Evolution.
He rushed around and tried to pull the thief out of the driver's seat.
During a tussle the door was opened and shut several times and at one point the victim's arm was caught in the car door.
He bravely carried on trying to drag the man out, but the other thief then got out, picked a large stone up and threw it at the victim.
It hit him in his chest and knocked him to the ground.
The thieves then reversed at speed along Clay Well and escaped.
The Mitsubishi was found dumped about five minutes later in a car park behind flats on Prospect Road in Longwood.
Sgt Tim O'Sullivan, of Huddersfield police, said: "We believe that while the car was being stolen from Golcar another car was parked at the end of Clay Well to stop any other vehicles from getting in the way while the thieves sped off.
"We'd like to speak to anyone who saw this car or the Mitsubishi being abandoned in Longwood.
"It seems the car was dumped very shortly after it was stolen, so did anyone see it being driven from Golcar to Longwood, probably in convoy with the other car at 7.30pm?
"The victim was certainly brave in the way he tried to stop the theft and he almost succeeded."
Both thieves are white.
