Police say that a man carjacked a 17-year-old in Byron Bay just before midnight on Friday.

The reports say that at about 11.43pm on March 5, a 17-year-old man parked his motor vehicle registration BCB 18B a silver Honda Civic, in the Lawson street carpark at Byron Bay.

As he exited the vehicle he was approached from behind by an unknown male.

The male pulled the victims singlet and grabbed his arm causing him to fall to the ground.

The victim heard other persons running in towards him and fearing further assault he ran from the carpark.

Four males wearing dark clothing were seen chasing the victim. The male has then stolen the Honda and was last seen driving south on Bay street.

As a result of the incident the victim received some grazing to his forearm.

Police attended shortly after and are investigating the theft. Police are reviewing CCTV cameras in the Byron Bay area and are urging any witnesses who have any information about the Robbery to contact Byron Bay Police or Crime stoppers.

Police have still not located the vehicle. The male involved is described as approximately 17 years old, Caucasian, long black hair and wearing all dark clothing.
