Tewksbury Carjacking Caught on Tape Search On for Suspect

After tips poured in from other law enforcement agencies, Tighe's name emerged hours after investigators released terrifying surveillance video of the female victim trying to overtake the carjacker identified as Tighe at a fuel pump as gasoline from the nozzle she uses to strike him rained down on them both.

A carjacker in MA met his match after a woman drenched him in gasoline for trying to steal from her.

A woman was captured on video attempting to fight back against a carjacker by dousing him with gasoline before she was dragged several feet as the man stole her vehicle while she was pumping gas.

The video then shows the suspect drive off in the vehicle, dragging the woman with it for a few feet before leaving her on the ground in the parking lot. Officers are still looking for William Tighe, according to the Lowell Sun. "When she wasn't paying attention, pumping her own gas, he just hopped right in and tried to take off with it".

Police said the woman was taken to an area hospital to be checked out. "He tried to close the door and she fought back".

Elite 8-bound: Kentucky beats UCLA 86-75 in South semifinal
His 3-pointer sent the Kentucky fans here into a state of delirium, and the shot tied the score at 73 with nine seconds left. In many ways, it was the first meeting - a 57-53 SC win on January 18 - that set the stage for where both teams are today.

Tighe is wanted for carjacking and assault and battery with a unsafe weapon.

Police continue to search for a man accused of stealing a woman's vehicle as she desperately tried to stop him.

The SUV was found about 90 minutes later in Lowell after police got a Lojack hit and followed the Mazda to end of Durant and Beacon streets on Christian Hill, where the driver got out and fled on foot.

The Sun reported that in December 2014 he led police on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle through Burlington and Bedford, Mass.
