Nowra man forced from car at gunpoint


Police have charged  a man following an armed car jacking in East Nowra in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Just before 2 o'clock a 32 year old man was driving a Kia Rio on Holloway Road when he saw a man waving his arms and stopped.

Police allege the man entered the Rio and threatened the driver with a gun, forcing him out of the car and driving away.

The driver was uninjured and police inquiries led to the arrest of a 21-year-old man in West Nowra that same afternoon.

A shortened .22 firearm, ammunition and white powder were allegedly seized...with the man  facing six charges and refused bail to face Nowra Local Court today.
