Detectives investigate after teen has car stolen at knifepoint in Meadow Springs

Mandurah Detectives release CCTV images after teen has car stolen at knifepoint.

Mandurah Detectives are investigating an apparent planned armed robbery which saw a teen threatened with a knife in a Meadow Springs car park on Saturday.

It’s understood the 17-year-old boy was approached by a man who asked for help to jump start his car as it had a flat battery about 11:30pm.

The teen offered to help start the man’s white Holden sedan with his own vehicle and pulled up beside him for the jumper leads to reach the battery.

As this was happening a second man approached the boy with a knife and threatened him.

Investigators said the man then got into the teen’s Holden Club Sport and drove off with the white Holden sedan following behind.

The stolen Club Sport was found burnt out more than 200 kilometres away in Quindanning several hours later.

Police have released CCTV images of two men who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.

The first man was wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap, the second man was wearing a dark top and blue jeans.
