Carjack terror: ‘Give me the keys or I’ll kill you’

A MAN was threatened with a knife and a gun before his convertible BMW was stolen during a group attack in Brisbane's south overnight.

About 12.30am, the man was confronted by a group of men outside a Plum St home at Runcorn.

The group pulled a knife and a firearm on the man, with one reportedly saying: "Give me the keys or I'll kill you".

They then took the keys to his blue BMW 320D convertible and drove off.

The Runcorn incident comes after a Mercedes was carjacked by an armed group of Africans at Yeronga Tuesday night.

The victim did not require medical treatment.

Police described the offenders as African men aged in their mid-20s.

The stolen vehicle is described as a blue BMW 320D hard top convertible with Queensland registration 248-XYX.

Police are investigating if the incident is linked to a similar attack on Tuesday night that saw a gang of African appearance target a Mercedes at a service station.

That incident occurred at Yeronga, about 14km from Runcorn, and saw the victim slashed with a knife.
