Arrests over Auckland carjacking

6:56 pm on 13 October 2014

Two men have been arrested while another man is still on the run after an attempted carjacking in Mangere Bridge this afternoon.

Police said a suspicious car with three men inside was seen in the Clendon Park area just after 1pm.

They said one of them was thought to be carrying a sawn-off shotgun.

Police said the car sped off and a police helicopter saw it pull over in the Mangere Bridge area.

Two men ran off and tried to carjack a passing car, pointing the shotgun at a driver, but the driver refused to stop and they were arrested shortly after, they said.
