An 18-year-old woman was charged with one count each of robbery, unauthorised use of a motor vehicle and evading police. She was also charged with two counts of stealing.

Another 13-year-old girl is in custody and is assisting police as they conduct further investigations.

The group allegedly flagged down a delivery driver on Primary School Court before producing a knife and demanding that the driver exit the vehicle. They then left the scene in the stolen vehicle.

The vehicle allegedly failed to stop when police attempted to intercept it on Nambour Road before it was found abandoned on Maroubra Street later that night.

The 18-year-old woman was released on conditional bail and is scheduled to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 2.
