Woman faces knife ordeal in car-jacking

POLICE are searching for two men after a woman had a knife held to her throat during a terrifying car-jacking in an Ipswich suburb.

The victim was driving along Alice St, Blackstone, delivering a pizza when a car travelling behind signalled for her to pull over, just after midnight yesterday morning.

A man armed with a knife, forcing her into the back seat.

A second man sat in the back seat with the victim, as the first man sat in the driver's seat and drove the car.

It is believed they held the woman in the car while driving to a number of locations around Ipswich, before releasing the woman without physically harming her.

She was released in Naomai St and the car was later found by police abandoned in Emma St, Bundamba.

Ipswich District Inspector Dave Preston said the woman was holding up well considering the ordeal.

"She was a bit shaken up by it, and her family were shaken up. They have threatened her and detained her in the vehicle," he said.

"They used the knife to take control of the car."

Forensic police scoured the car searching for evidence to identify the two men.

The men were described as aged between 25 and 30 years old, both wore dark clothing during the attack.
