A 69-year-old disabled Navy veteran was the target of a carjacker last week in North Texas.

The whole thing was caught on camera at the Richland Hills gas station where it happened. The video here shows the veteran fighting back against the man who was trying to steal his truck.

Allan Huddleston says a man approached him and took his wallet.

"He got in the truck immediately and tried to drive off. When he tried to drive off, I've got the keys. I reach into my truck and I put him in a headlock and I drag him out of my truck," Huddleston said.

The fight continued on the ground until the thief overpowered Huddleston, taking the keys. He kept fighting as the thief drove off, dragging the veteran 20 feet.

The truck was found abandoned and police are still looking for the suspect.
