Assault, car theft report

WARREN — A 27-year-old Cortland man reported his silver Hyundai Sante Fe was stolen shortly after 10 p.m. Friday after a man known to him forced him to drive to Akron after punching him in the nose.

After taking the suspect to Akron and returning to Warren, the Cortland man told police he went to Red & White Supermarket, where he was to meet a friend to help get the suspect out of the vehicle.

When the victim got out of the car, the suspect moved from the passenger to the driver’s seat and drove away, nearly hitting its owner as he stood in the parking lot, according to the police report.
