Man charged over Kiama carjacking

 

Police have arrested and charged a man in relation to the armed robbery and carjacking of a taxi driver in Kiama last Friday.

 

The taxi driver had taken a man from Wollongong Train Station to the lighthouse at Kiama when he allegedly produced a knife and demanded money before getting into the driver's seat and fleeing the scene in the taxi.

 

The vehicle was later found abandoned on Swamp Road in Jamberoo.

 

Following investigations, a 31-year-old man was arrested at a unit on Helen Street in Warilla around 1 o'clock this morning and he will face court today.
