Four Teenagers Charged After Allegedly Carjacking Elderly Woman

Four teenagers have been charged after they allegedly assaulted an elderly woman and stole her car at a Logan City shopping centre in southeast Queensland.

Police allege two girls approached the 73-year-old Crestmead woman in the car park at Browns Plains about 2.30pm on Tuesday, with one pushing the woman before grabbing her keys and throwing them to the other girl.

The second girl allegedly drove off in the sedan, picking up the other girl and two male teenagers on the way. The woman was uninjured.

Police parked behind the stolen car about an hour later at a shopping centre car park in Crestmead, with the driver allegedly reversing into the patrol car and another vehicle before four teenagers ran off.

The youths were caught a short time later and all were charged.

A 19-year-old Adare man will face Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Wednesday, while a 17-year-old Logan Reserve girl, a 16-year-old Boronia Heights boy and a 14-year-old Harristown girl will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.
