Police arriving at the scene found the elderly man bleeding on the sidewalk, police said. The man was apparently grocery shopping when the suspect attacked him and stole his brown 2001 Ford Focus.

The victim’s injuries were not considered life-threatening, and he declined transportation to the hospital, police said. Instead, a Saugus police officer drove him to a relative's house.

Saugus police are currently investigating the incident.

Police asked anyone with information to call Saugus police at 781-941-1199, or their anonymous tip line at 781-231-4037.
