Tewksbury Police are investigating a carjacking that happened at a gas station Saturday evening. 

The woman was pumping gas on Andover Street when someone got into her car and the woman tried to spray him with gasoline. He took off, dragging her, said police, but fortunately, she was not seriously injured. 

"She said that her car got stolen, someone took off with her car," a gas station attendant told FOX25's Jim Morelli. "When she wasn't paying attention, pumping her own gas, he just hopped right in and tried to take off with it. He tried to close the door and she fought back."

Surveillance video shows the suspect getting into the car as the woman tries to fight him off.

The suspect remains at large with the stolen vehicle.
