A thug has threatened a man with 22-year-old man with scissors during a carjacking in Cranbourne on 11 November.
Police say the victim was waiting at a set of traffic lights outside a shopping centre on the South Gippsland Highway when he was approached by an unknown man armed with a pair of scissors shortly after 11pm.
The man forced the victim to drive a short distance away before demanding the victim get out of his car, police say. The victim has complied and the offender drove off in the red Mazda sedan.
The Lyndhurst man was not injured during the incident.
Police recovered the Mazda sedan the following day after it was found in Cranbourne.
Investigators have released images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.
Anyone who witnessed the carjacking or anyone with dash cam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
