Brockton Police were called just before 10 p.m. when the unidentified man first allegedly tried to steal a car at the Speedway Gas Station at 296 North Pearl Street.

The suspect was unsuccessful at the gas station but managed to jump into a Kia Rio that was left running outside the 7-11 located at 65 Oak Street Extension.
