At around 9pm on Sunday 27 February 2022, we received a report of a collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian on Church Street, Horwich.
Officers attended and established that a woman in her 60’s had disturbed an unknown male inside her home. After going outside to shout for help, the victim was struck by her own car as it was stolen.
Alongside the black Volkswagen T Roc (MA18 WZT), the woman's handbag was also stolen.
The car has since been recovered.
The victim was taken to hospital where she remains with head, abdominal and leg injuries.
Inspector Deborah Hurst, of GMP's Bolton district, said: "This was a horrific experience for the victim - we wish her well, hoping she makes a full recovery.
"Enquiries are ongoing but we are appealing for anyone with information to contact us.
"We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with dash cam footage which shows the VW T Roc since it was stolen on Sunday evening"
