A man has been charged after a pregnant woman has been allegedly assaulted twice and hit with her own car south of Brisbane.

Walking to her car at a health facility in Loganlea on Friday morning, the 23-year-old woman was approached by a man.

Police allege the man stole her phone, punched her in the head and then stole her car.

“The woman managed to walk to a nearby bus stop where it will be alleged the man returned and drove the vehicle up onto the footpath and into the bus shelter, hitting the woman,” police said in a statement. “It will further be alleged the man then kicked the woman to the head and stomach before fleeing in the woman’s vehicle.”

The woman was treated in Logan Hospital for various injuries she sustained from the incident.

A 24-year-old man was later arrested at a home in Kingston, and was charged with assault, theft and dangerous driving.  He is expected to face Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Monday.

  • Utterly appalling. It seems strange he came back unless he knew her.


  • … Is the baby ok? Is the mother ok? How did they find him? Did she get her car back? Was the accused known to the victim? Not much info… Hopefully everybody is ok, and the receive justice.


  • I was hoping the expectant Mum would be admitted for a couple of days under observation but there is no indication of that in the article. There is always a risk of delayed shock or concussion that may not be obvious straight away. I hope she and her unborn baby are OK. If she has a miscarriage as a result of the attacks I hope the Police have an extra charge that will keep him in gaol for a lot longer. He should at least be charged with attempted murder the fact that he deliberately drove up onto the footpath.


  • Incredible! What was the reason? I’m glad they found him. And I really hope the woman and her baby are ok!!


  • Lke hg


  • Omg. This is terrible. That poor lady
