It is alleged a man got into a vehicle on London Court after arranging a test drive with a woman who was selling the car about 6pm.

The man allegedly stopped the car, threatened the woman, then assaulted her before she was pushed out of the vehicle on The Embankment.

She sustained minor injuries, and the man fled the scene in the vehicle.

Police executed a warrant at a property in Kalkallo yesterday, where a man and woman were arrested at the scene.

He’s been remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court later today.

The 31-year-old Kalkallo woman was charged with unrelated offences including theft, handling stolen goods and obtaining property by deception.

She’s been bailed to appear at Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court on 9 August 2023.
