Wareham Police responded Sunday night to the Cumberland Farms on Main Street where a juvenile was stealing a car.
The owner of the vehicle had been inside the store and when he approached the suspect, he drove away, dragging the owner several feet, and fleeing down Main Street with Wareham police attempting to stop him.
The car finally stopped in the area of Hathaway Street near the railroad tracks and the juvenile jumped out and ran.
After a brief foot chase the suspect was apprehended by two Wareham Officers.
The juvenile is being charged with larceny and reckless operation of a motor vehicle, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and receiving a stolen motor vehicle.
The owner of the car was treated and released from Tobey Hospital.
