Two teenagers have been charged over a carjacking in Malak.

They were part of a group who allegedly put a man in a headlock and dragged him from his car at a service station before driving off on Saturday.

Officers followed the vehicle through the rural area before deploying tyre deflation devices in Karama.

The car was eventually abandoned in Tiwi, where Patrol Dog Drax found a 14-year-old boy hiding in a downstairs storeroom at a home.

Another 14-year-old boy was arrested in a nearby park.

The pair have been charged with aggravated robbery offences.

Investigations are ongoing to find the other offenders.
