Woman threatened with axe in SEQ car jacking
FOUR people have been charged over two terrifying car jackings in Brisbane overnight, one of which involved a woman being threatened with an axe in her driveway.
Police will allege that about 7.30pm last night, a woman was approached by 25-year-old Fallon Samuel Wilton in her driveway at Boondall and he told her to hand over her car keys.
It is alleged he produced a small axe, and the woman screamed - alerting her husband who ran outside.
Fallon is alleged to have reversed the car out of the driveway and a police helicopter tracked it to the grounds of a school at Kedron.
By this time, it is alleged there were three other people in the car - Dailey Eileen Bell and Agatha Akenson, both aged 23, and 27-year-old Daniel John Lander.
The car collided with a police vehicle before it was driven onto a nearby oval and became stuck.
The quartet attempted to flee on foot, but the two women were caught near the car and Lander was taken into custody soon after.
It is alleged Wilton managed to get to an address at Kedron, where he implied he had a gun and stole another car.
He then allegedly entered the car and locked the doors, refusing to leave and brandishing a hammer when officers approached.
A police dog then entered the car, biting Wiltonâ€™s arm and allowing police to disarm him.
Wilton was charged with one count each of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, armed robbery, unlawful use of motor vehicle, failing to stop, possessing dangerous drugs, wilful damage and driving without a licence.
Lander was charged with one count each of serious assault, armed robbery, attempted robbery, wilful damage and unlawful use of motor vehicle.
Akenson is facing a charge of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of dangerous drugs, while Bell is facing two counts of unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
All four appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning.
The two women were granted bail, while the men were remanded in custody.
The court was told Bell would dispute she was present when the cars were taken, and there was no suggestion Akenson was involved in the thefts.
