Detectives have arrested 10 people and recovered a stolen Audi after a violent carjacking on Brisbane’s southside on Monday night, according to police.
It would be alleged four men went to a Comet Street home in Runcorn about 9.30pm to test-drive a 2008 beige Audi A4.
Police said two of the men got into the car with the 33-year-old resident and his 21-year-old friend and they began the test drive.
It would be alleged one of the men pulled a gun during the drive, punched the 21-year-old in the head and forced the resident and his friend out of the car.
The accused drove back to the house and collected their accomplices before driving off, according to police.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said officers arrested 10 people at an Annerley motel about 10am on Tuesday and located the Audi nearby.
On Tuesday night, three of the 10 arrested were charged.
A 17-year-old Warner man was due to appear in the Richlands Magistrates Court on Wednesday on charges of armed robbery, assault occasioning bodily harm, common assault, stealing and receiving tainted property.
An 18-year-old Kingston man charged with offences including robbery in company, assault occasioning bodily harm, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and wilful damage was due to front the same court.
An 18-year-old Goodna man charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle was scheduled to appear on January 31.
