Teenage trauma


A TEENAGE girl waiting for her mother to pay for petrol at a Seaford service station was traumatised when a man allegedly jumped in and attempted to hijack their car, Thursday 4 January.

Detective Senior Constable Marty O’Brien, of Frankston CIU, said the 16-year-old briefly struggled with the Frankston North man, 23, when he attempted to start their Ford Cougar car about 10.20pm.

The quick-thinking teen managed to grab the keys and run inside the Nepean Highway service station shop where her mother called police.

The man was remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 17 January charged with attempted carjacking.
