Woman in shock after violent Brighton carjacking

A violent carjacking in Melbourne’s south-east has left a woman injured and in shock.

Danielle tells 3AW’s Tony Jones she was followed along St Kilda Road in Brighton, before she was cornered.

‘It happened in seconds.’

Danielle went out late, around 12.30am, to get some dog food when she noticed the car following her.

She says she attempted to run to a nearby home for help when four men of African appearence ‘jumped’ her.

‘I managed to throw my phone into someone’s garden.’

Danielle says she pleaded with the men, but they repeatedly punched her in the head and shouted, ‘Give me the f?ing keys!’

‘They punched me in the face, I’ve got a black eye and they pulled my hair, I’m just sore,’ she said on 3AW Mornings.

Danielle was driving a rental Toyota Corolla at the time.
