Police are appealing for public assistance after a carjacking in Sydney’s north-west yesterday.
About 3.00pm (Tuesday 26 January 2021), officers attached to Blacktown Police Area Command responded to reports of a carjacking at Seven Hills.
Police were told a man was sitting in his vehicle in Rowley Street, opposite a shopping centre, when he was approached by another man.
