Carjacking attempt

An attempted carjacking took place at a 7-Eleven in Yeronga, Brisbane earlier in the week Seven News reported.

Two people approached a man fueling up his car at the service station and demanded the man hand over his car keys.

One of the carjackers was armed with a knife that the man managed to take and use to ward them away.

Despite getting into the car and attempting to leave the scene, the victim still had the car keys and the two carjackers left the scene.

QLD Police said the victim suffered a superficial laceration to his neck.

“Members of the public stepped in and the group fled on foot,” QLD Police said.

“A short time later a man was reversing a red Toyota Yaris out of a driveway in Paragon Street when a group of men surrounded the vehicle.

“The group then forced the man out of the driver’s seat before punching him in the head and stealing the vehicle.

“The stolen vehicle is described as a red 2006 Toyota Yaris with Queensland registration 180-WVP.

“The men are described as African and being aged in their mid 20s.”

Investigators are appealing for anyone with information or dash cam vision from the Yeronga area – particularly around Fairfield Road, Nelson Street and Stephens Street  to contact police.
