Two men have been arrested and an elderly woman remains in hospital after allegedly being run over in her own driveway while trying to steal a car.
Jean Parry, in her 70s, was sitting in her car in the driveway of her home in Hamilton Hill, 23km south-west of Perth, Western Australia, after returning from a walk around 8am on Friday when two men stole her Honda Civic.
The two men, aged 22 and 24, allegedly came to the house on Ralston Street on bicycles, where they forced Ms Parry out of her car and ran over her leg as they fled in the stolen vehicle.
Two men, aged 22 and 24, were arrested 40 minutes after they allegedly stole an elderly woman’s car and broke her leg when they ran her over with their own car (pictured, police bodycam footage captured the moment show where the two men were arrested).
The stolen car was found in the nearby suburb of North Coogee about 40 minutes later when police arrested the two men in a dramatic takedown on the beach.
Police bodycam footage shows officers arresting the shirtless attackers – one in a meadow and the other in the sand on the beach.
Ms Parry was taken to Fiona Stanley Hospital and treated for her injuries, including a broken leg.
Detective Sergeant Jason Hutchison told Nine News there was “some sort of altercation.”
“He approached the vehicle, there was some kind of altercation, she landed on the ground and then when the man drove away he ran her over,” Hutchison said.

Mr Hutchison described the attack as a “brazen opportunistic offense” as detectives believe the men did not take advantage of Ms Parry but threw themselves when they saw her running the car to open her driveway gate.
Police have charged the two men with multiple offenses, including aggravated aggravated assault.
The men are due in court on Saturday.
