Calgary police are searching for a suspect after a man was run over multiple times by the driver of a stolen vehicle in the city’s northwest on Sunday afternoon.

Police said in a release that they got several calls of a male pedestrian being run over multiple times at about 12:45 p.m. in the 4600 block of 83rd Street N.W., police said in a release.
