A five-year-old girl was involved in a terrifying ordeal when he got caught up in the carjacking of a luxury car which was stolen in Melbourne.

Police have since located the vehicle that was stolen in Wyndham Vale this morning with the child inside.

The BMW was taken from a property on Kinglake Drive about 6.30am by a single male offender.

A second man then left the scene in a white Toyota Supra.

The vehicle was then sighted by police in Norlane just after 7am and a short pursuit commenced.

The vehicle was stopped on Plume Street and one man ran from the car.

The five-year-old girl was located safe and well.

One of the men is described as wearing a grey top, black tracksuit pants and red and grey shoes, and has wavy brown hair.

Police are currently searching for the two men and anyone with any other information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or to submit confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au

  • The article states carjacked. Maybe one of the parents were getting into the car when it happened. A few years ago I heard of a car in which the driver was forcibly removed from the car and there was a baby in a babyseat. Maybe the baby woke up and cried. When the alledged discovered the baby in the car, they lifted the baby out of the car intact in the babyseat and left it in a safe place where it was found by a member of the public who then discovered there was a baby still in it.


  • An absolute nightmare for her parents.


  • I’m so glad she was found safe. Poor little girl


  • Unbelievable that these men proceed with their offense when they see a wee girl in the car they’re carjacking !! How scared this child must have been !!


  • Saw this on the news tonight – so good that the child was found and unharmed. Hope they throw the book at the car jacker.


  • Luckily that they could locate the little girl!!


  • So glad the little girl was found safe and well.Carjacking seems to be on the rise which is not good.


  • So glad this young girl was unharmed and returned to her family.


  • Does this mean the child was left unattended in the car? Terrible situation. Glad she was returned safe and sound and hope the offenders are caught asap
