Despite his injury, the man managed to run into the shopping centre where people rushed to assist him.

He was then transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition and underwent emergency surgery overnight.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who attended the shopping centre and may have witnessed the incident or the man’s black sedan to contact police.

Investigators believe a man captured on CCTV wearing a red baseball cap, blue shirt and glasses may have witnessed the incident and are particularly urging him to come forward.
