A TEENAGER dragged into a car in Langwarrin late last month was lucky to escape injury.
Frankston detectives said the 19-year-old Langwarrin man was walking along Tyrone Street, Langwarrin, towards the Warrandyte Road intersection when a light blue Hyundai hatch with three men aboard pulled up beside him, 6.45pm, Saturday 25 August.
The two passengers jumped out and pushed the victim into the car and drove off. They made no demands and the victim said he did not know them.
When they stopped at the intersection of Claremont Court and Lang Road the victim managed to jump out and the car drove off – with the car door still open.
The front seat passenger is described as African, mid-to-late 20s, short, curly black hair, dark jumper and dark jeans; the rear seat passenger as Caucasian, mid-to-late 20s, stocky build, blond shoulder-length hair, short beard and wearing a grey hoodie. No description of the driver was given.
