There’s been dramatic scenes in Gippsland this morning, with a man going on a carjacking rampage at Leongatha.

A 21-year-old male is now in custody.

A stolen vehicle crashed into parked cars outside an aged car facility on McCartin Street at about 10.30am on Monday.

Those cars then burst into flames.

The offender fled, viciously assaulting a woman who was able to get her children out of her car before it was stolen.

Police were then led on a pursuit, hitting speeds of up to 180 kilometres an hour where another car was stolen.

The alleged offender was arrested in the Alberton area.
