Windsor Police are investigating a violent vehicle theft.

Police say it all started around 6:50am on Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 when they were called to an apartment building located in the 3100 block of Sandwich Street for property damage in progress.

Police said it was reported that a man had attended the building and was in the parking lot damaging a vehicle with a knife. The man was known to the complainant who had called the police.

A description of the man was obtained, and officers began searching for him as he left the area prior to police arrival.

At approximately 7:20am patrol officers were called to a business in the 800 block of Huron Church Road. It was being reported that a man matching the same description had just smashed the window of an occupied car. The man then fled the area on foot.

The occupant of the car was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
