Local arrested three people following an aggravated carjacking in Aintree on the 19-02-21. At around 4.00 am police were called to the intersection of Woodlea Boulevard and Leakes Road following reports a taxi driver had been assaulted. The driver picked up a woman and two men in the Ballarat area and agreed to drive them to Sydenham before a dispute over the fare ensued.

A dog squad unit quickly responded and tracked down the offenders who were hiding in a field.

The thirty-year-old taxi driver was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries.
