Tragically the victim, in his 50s who is believed to be a deliver driver, remains in a critical condition in hospital.

It is believed a silver Mercedes was stolen and officers continue to hunt for the vehicle.

Mr Speed says he heard his door bell ring followed by someone shouting, "no, no, no!".

He said the driver ran towards his car and grabbed hold of the passenger window and was clinging on as the thieves drove off.

Mr Speed, who is a builder, said: "I saw him running to the passenger door."

He continued: "He must have had the window open. He grabbed hold of the car and the car reversed a little. Then it pulled out and sped off with him holding onto it.

"They then sped off, leaving the victim in the middle of the road."

Mr Speed ran outside to help him with other neighbours.

He said: "He was bleeding everywhere. It was just horrible. I was just disgusted someone would do that."

Det Insp Charlotte Whalley, of GMP's Stockport district, said: "This was a horrific ordeal that has rocked the community and has left the delivery driver fighting for his life in hospital.

"At this stage, it is thought there were others involved in the incident and we're currently carrying out a number of lines of enquiry to trace those believed to be responsible.

"We're continuing to ask the public to come forward with any information that may assist us - even the smallest bit of information can prove vital.

"Anyone who may have seen a silver Mercedes in the area at the time or may have seen it in suspicious circumstances since is asked to get in touch - this vehicle could prove vital in our investigation.

"We're also keen for anyone with any CCTV or dash-cam footage to get in touch."
