Woman carjacked by man with scissors

A WOMAN has been carjacked by a man armed with scissors in a carpark on the Sunshine Coast.

The woman had just stepped out of her vehicle in a carpark on Amaroo street at Maroochydore about 7.20pm on Tuesday when she was set upon by a man demanding her keys.

Police said the woman ignored the man and tried walking away but the man allegedly pulled out a knife and threatened her before snatching her keys.


The man then jumped in the woman’s car with another man and the pair drove away.

Thankfully, the woman was not physically harmed during the incident. Her attackers remain at large.

Anyone with any information that could help police locate the offenders is urged to come forward.
