A 30-year-old man sustained serious injuries on Sunday after being ploughed down by a car at a party in southern Sweden.

The attacker was kicked out of a private party in Malmö after he was caught trying to steal coats. The man drove away in a car after being tossed out by guests, who wrote down the car's license number as he sped off.

A few hours later, while some 20 guests were standing outside, the car reappeared with two passengers.

The driver aimed directly at the crowd, but missed when everybody moved. The car turned and had another go at the crowd. This time the 30-year-old was not fast enough and was hit by the car, which then drove off.

Police are considering the attack as attempted murder or reckless driving. The car was stolen in Lund on May 20th.
