Fawkner Embona Taskforce investigators have arrested five people following an alleged carjacking in Dallas early Sunday morning, Victoria Police say.

The 46-year-old Craigieburn man was not physically injured during the incident.

Four men and a woman were since taken into custody during a planned arrest at an address on Tylden Place, Westmeadows about 4.30pm yesterday (20 August).

They were arrested by members of the Special Operations Group, with two firearms also seized.

A 27-year-old Dandenong North man has been charged with aggravated carjacking and was remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today.
