Carjacking charges


A FRANKSTON North man will face court this week charged over an aggravated carjacking in company with another man in Somerville, 5pm, Sunday 17 June.

Detectives from Mornington Peninsula CIU arrested the 40-year-old, Friday 3 August. He has been remanded in custody to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Friday 10 August, charged with aggravated carjacking. The other man, 47, of Somerville, is already in custody over the incident. He will reappear at a later date for a committal hearing.

Police will allege the two men, one armed with a knife, threatened the woman, 36, in a supermarket car park before opening the passenger-side door and striking her on the thigh with the butt end of the knife. They then ordered her from the car and told her not to call police before driving it away.
