He tried to get away but was reportedly assaulted by a second man and his car keys and the vehicle were stolen.

Later the same day, police seized a van in Dartford thought to have been used by the suspects.

They also recovered the victim's car in Greenhithe.

Two men were arrested yesterday (May 9) after an investigation by Kent Crime Squad officers.
