Public appeal after aggravated carjacking in Glen Waverley

Southern Metro Region Crime Team detectives are hoping to identify a male after a woman was allegedly threatened at knife point during an aggravated carjacking in Glen Waverley last month.

The incident occurred on Kerrie Road about 8.40pm on Wednesday, 17 March.

The 46-year-old woman was sitting in her parked Mazda CX-9 when she was approached by two males.

The first male entered on the passenger side and allegedly held a knife towards the woman.

The second man opened the driver door and demanded the woman to get out before threatening her with a knife.

The woman was then allegedly stabbed to the hand and tried to exit the vehicle but became stuck in the seat belt.

The second man then entered the driver’s side and began driving the vehicle for approximately 100m while dragging the victim along the road.

The woman fell from the car and was subsequently taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Detectives arrested a 17-year-old Roxburgh Park teen on 25 March and charged him with 19 offences including aggravated carjacking.

He was remanded to appear before a children’s court at a later date.

Detectives are hoping to identify the second male involved and have released CCTV footage as part of their investigation.

The male is perceived to be African in appearance, approximately 183cm tall and was wearing a black puffer jacket and light grey trackpants.

Anyone who recognises the man or with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
