Man, six-year-old girl threatened with knife during alleged carjacking

A 28-year-old man will face Albury Court after an attempted carjacking in Corowa, in which police allege he threatened a man and his six-year-old daughter with a knife. 

Police said about 5.40pm on Saturday, a 42-year-old man and a six-year-old girl were stationary in a vehicle at a drive-through fast-food restaurant on Sanger Street, Corowa, when they were approached by a 28-year-old man, who allegedly produced a knife before threatening the duo and demanding the keys to the car.

As the 42-year-old man got out of the vehicle, the 28-year-old man left the area.

The incident was reported to officers attached to Murray River Police District.

Police said short time later, a 35-year-old man allegedly located the 28-year-old man in his vehicle, which was parked in Riesling Street.

When confronted, the 28-year-old man again left the scene and was located a short distance away on Sanger Street by patrolling police.

He was arrested and taken to Corowa Police Station, where he was charged with aggravated assault with intent to take/drive motor vehicle armed with weapon and enter vehicle without consent of owner.

The man was refused bail to appear at Albury Local Court today.
