Teen carjacked by man armed with ‘sharpened screwdriver’

A 19-year-old has had his car stolen by two men armed with a sharpened screwdriver in Ormeau overnight.

Police say the teen and a 15-year-old boy were sitting under a shelter at a skate park on Cuthbert Drive when they were approached by the two men just before 8.00pm.

“One of the men asked for a lift, and when the 19-year-old refused the man produced a sharpened screwdriver,” Qld police said.
