Police release CCTV vision of car stolen in violent carjacking

POLICE are seeking help from the public to find a black Holden Commodore sedan stolen in a violent carjacking on the Gold Coast.

Detectives have released CCTV vision of the vehicle pulling into a service station shortly after it was stolen at knifepoint in Labrador last month.

Police said a 19-year-old male was bailed up by four young men as he walked towards his black Holden Commodore sedan, parked on Billington Street around 10pm on June 30.

One of the males allegedly pulled a knife on the teen and demanded he hand over his wallet and keys.

The 19-year-old complied with their demands and the group drove off in his car, police said.

Thankfully, the teen was not physically injured.

His 2006 black Holden Commodore with red and black interior seat covers was captured on CCTV pulling into a nearby service station a short time later.
