Carjack victim terrified

A man, who was carjacked at knife-point in Altona Meadows before being driven to a secluded Altona carpark, waited terrified for six hours in the dark for help.

Police have released security footage of two women they want to speak to about the car- jacking and robbery.

Embona armed robbery taskforce investigators say a 36 year-old Werribee man was at a Queen Street service station about 12.30am on April 18.

He had filled his car with petrol when a woman with distinctive blue/green hair got out of a silver Holden VX Commodore and started a conversation with him.

She then got into the man’s car and pulled a knife on him, demanding that he drive to a secluded carpark near Altona boat ramp.

The Commodore followed closely behind, with another woman at the wheel, and pulled up next to the man’s car when they arrived at the boat ramp. Two men jumped out of the Commodore and took the victim’s car keys, mobile phone, wallet and coins.

The four suspects then got back in the Commodore and drove away.

Senior Constable Hannah Wright, of the Altona North Embona taskforce, said the victim was terrified throughout the ordeal.

“He was terrified that they were going to come back and steal his car,” she said. “So he’s waited there for six hours in the cold, waiting … so that he could notify a passerby.”

Police want to speak to two women captured on camera at the Altona Meadows service station. One woman is described as Caucasian, aged 20-30, about 165-170 centimetres tall, with a slim build, blue/green hair and a tattoo band on her right ankle. She was wearing black pants, a white T-shirt and black Nike runners.

The second woman is described as Caucasian, aged 20-30 and about 160-165 centimetres, with long blonde hair. She was wearing black pants, a black Crosshatch jumper and sneakers.

Descriptions of the male suspects are vague but one is described as being of African appearance and 175-180 centimetres tall.
