Nanango man threatened with machete and carjacked

POLICE are on the hunt for an unknown man who allegedly wielded a machete during an early morning carjacking incident at Nanango this week.

On Monday, October 15, at 4.15am, a 22-year-old Nanango man was reversing down his driveway when a white Mitsubishi station wagon allegedly pulled up behind his car.

He said a male approached him and placed a machete to his throat and said, "move away from the car".

The unknown man then allegedly drove off in the stolen vehicle.

The vehicle was later found burnt out at 5am the same morning, on Tarong Power Station Rd.

Kingaroy Senior Sergeant David Tierney said the unknown man had been described as 160cm tall with a slim build.

Sgt Tierney said if a person ever found themselves in a similar situation, it was best to cooperate.

"Just do what you're asked to do," he said.

Police are continuing investigations.
