When the woman realised the man was about to drive off with her car, she jumped on top of her car and grabbed the windshield wiper.

The incident happened in Wisconsin. The would-be thief gave up and jumped back into the getaway car and sped off.

Richard Brussow, director of the National Hijacking Prevention Academy (NHPA), has been investigating hijackings for 21 years and previously shared his findings from an in-depth analysis of hijackings on Breakfast with Martin Bester. Listen to it here.
