Pleasanton resident Aaron Hanna, 26, was recently arrested by San Mateo police after allegedly striking a man then stealing his car.
Hanna was riding with an acquaintance when the car overheated, so the 30-year-old San Bruno resident pulled over into a Chevron parking lot on North Delaware Street.
Once the driver got out to attend to his vehicle he was struck with a sledgehammer. The victim didn’t suffer any life threatening injuries, but Hanna was then able to flee with his black Honda Accord.
Officers sent out a city wide broadcast and after a few hours they were able to track down Hanna and the vehicle. He was then booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of auto theft, assault with a deadly weapon, and carjacking.
