Just after 8am a woman was sitting in her car parked in George Street when she was approached by a man armed with a knife. He threatened the woman and attempted to steal her car.
The woman left the car where it was parked and alerted police but the man had left prior to their arrival. The woman was not physically injured.
As a result of investigations, police arrested a 29-year-old man from Millicent with aggravated assault. He was refused police bail and appeared in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court yesterday where he was remanded in custody.
