Teens charged over violent carjacking

Queensland Police have charged two teenage boys over an alleged armed robbery at Logan Central this morning, which saw the victim stabbed with a knife before having his car stolen.

“Police will allege, just before 1am a 43-year-old man was parked outside a business on Wembley Road when he was approached by a 16-year-old Logan Central boy who produced a knife and demanded car keys, wallet and watch from the 43-year-old man,” Queensland Police said in a statement.

“The boy allegedly stabbed the man causing non-life threatening injuries to his abdomen and elbow, then fled in a car.”

Police arrived a short time later and the 43-year-old was transported to hospital for treatment.

Police later spotted the stolen vehicle heading south on the Pacific Motorway.

The car was intercepted by officers and the occupants – a 16-year-old Logan Central boy, and a 15-year-old Edens Landing Boy – were arrested. Police also seized a knife from the vehicle.

The 16-year-old Logan Central boy was charged with one count armed robbery, wounding and unlawful use of a motor vehicle. He was denied police bail and is due to face the Beenleigh Childrens Court this month.

The 15-year-old Edens Landing Boy was charged with one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle. He was denied police bail and is due to appear in the Beenleigh Childrens Court this month.
