A young woman has suffered serious injuries amid a horrifying car-jacking in a violent spree across Melbourne’s south-east last night.
The chaos began in a Seaford car park about 7.30pm when four people in a stolen Nissan X-Trail rammed three parked vehicles and two police cars.
A woman, 35, was arrested at the scene but three men sped off.
The police chase was terminated due to safety fears.
But, soon after, the car was involved in a crash on the Frankston-Cranbourne Road.
It was here that the men bashed an 18-year-old woman and dragged her from her Renault convertible.
They then stole her car, which was later found dumped in Frankston.
Louie witnessed that incident and told Neil Mitchell he couldn’t believe what he’d seen.
“I pulled up just before the lights and saw the cars stacked up, so I got out to see if everyone was fine and the next thing I see these kids that were bleeding trying to hijack another car,” he said.
He then decided to chase the offenders.
