A WANTED woman who allegedly used a knife to carjack a man in Wodonga has been denied release from custody.
Miranda Glasheen, who has a scar tattooed on her face with teardrop tattoos on her cheek, appeared before the Wodonga Magistrates Court this week.
It's alleged she targeted the victim in broad daylight on May 14.
The court heard the man had been driving a blue station wagon on Melbourne Road about 11am and parked at Fulford Street.
Glasheen, who had been holding a guitar and a shopping bag, asked for a lift before allegedly pulling out the knife and pointing it at the victim.
The court heard she asked for a lift, repeatedly telling the man to take her to an address.

Fearing for his safety, the man allowed Glasheen to get into his vehicle.
She allegedly continued to hold the knife in her left hand, pointing it towards the driver.
The pair drove towards Wilson Street, opposite the hospital where Glasheen's cousin lives, but she refused to get out of the car.
She wanted to be driven to the Vinnies store on High Street and allegedly held the blade only two inches from the victim as they drove past the police station.
She allegedly told the man she had only just gotten out of jail for armed robbery and wanted to get a wig.
The driver pulled up at the charity store and Glasheen got out, with the man driving straight to the police station to report the incident.
Security camera footage shows the victim driving past the store and Glasheen entering one minute later.
She asked a worker for a wig and was directed to the nearby Lifeline store.
She asked for a brown or black headpiece and said she was "desperate".
She was arrested at the Wodonga Plaza about 2.15pm.
Three people allegedly identified her by her face tattoos, but she denied the offending during an interview.
The court heard Glasheen has priors in Queensland, NSW and South Australia, with two arrest warrants in NSW for assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Her parole for robbery in Queensland was cancelled on Friday with about 18 months owed.
"Our concerns are that she will continue to offend," Detective Senior Constable Tim Doyle told magistrate David Faram in opposing bail.
Glasheen has never had a steady home for a long period and there were concerns she would fail to attend court if released, with further concern about her mental state.
Mr Faram refused bail.
"Even if exceptional circumstances were shown, I could not be satisfied she would be an acceptable risk to be placed on bail," he said.
Glasheen will return to court on August 1 for committal mention.
