Police have released dramatic footage of a driver’s desperate attempt to stop his car being stolen from a Darwin service station.
The footage captures the alleged thief, believed to be 24-year-old Timothy Slater, attempting to steal the car after the driver filled his car with petrol in Malak on November 30.
The driver sprinted back towards the car, launching a double-footed kick through the passenger window. The suspected thief is spotted running away from the car seconds later. Timothy Slater is wanted for questioning over a string of break ins and an attempted car theft at a Malak service station. Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Mark Bland said Slater was wanted by police for a string of alleged offences including aggravated assault, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and stealing. “We are also interested in talking to him in relation to an attempted car theft on November 30 at a Malak service station,” he said.
