A witness, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Mail: "The guy at the front of the moped started to hit the driver's window about 10 to 15 times and it eventually just cracked."He opens the door and gets Michael McIntyre out of the car. Michael fell but he was still trying to put up a fight."I just remember one of the bikers trying to get something. I don't know what the guy was trying to get - a watch, a wallet, maybe?"And then within seconds they were gone down the hill. It was all so quick - the whole thing must have taken 30 seconds. Michael's son was in the car with him in the front passenger seat."
