Driver carjacked at gunpoint after taking wrong turn

A DRIVER has been carjacked at gunpoint after taking a wrong turn and ending up in a dark, dead-end street north of Brisbane.

The 24-year-old man was driving through Narangba when police say he took a wrong turn into Barrine Place at around 3.45am on Saturday.

As the man tried driving out of the cul-de-sac, a white sedan which was parked on the side of the road allegedly pulled out in front of him, causing him to stop.


That’s when police say a man carrying a handgun allegedly got out of the sedan and threatened the 24-year-old before forcing him out of his car.

The armed man then fled the scene in the victim’s 2016 silver Hyundai Accent hatchback with Queensland registration 188-WML, while his two female accomplices took off in the white sedan.

Anyone who sees either vehicle is urged not to approach it, but to call Triple Zero (000) immediately.

The man is described as being Caucasian and approximately 178cms tall with light facial hair. Police say he was wearing a dark cap, t-shirt and hooded jacket at the time.

Anyone with any information that could assist police with their investigation is urged to come forward.
