Police are seeking a man over an alleged attempted carjacking in which a bullet was fired through a windscreen in Doveton on 8 July.

A driver in a stolen white Toyota C-HR SUV tailgated a 22-year-old Doveton man in a white 2012 Volkswagen Passat on Princes Highway about 1am, police say.

The SUV pulled in front of the Passat, forcing its driver to stop on Power Road.

The SUV driver and three passengers got out, walked up the victim’s door and demanded for him to get out.

The victim reversed, sped off and the offender allegedly fired a shot through the windscreen.

The bullet missed the man, who was not physically injured.

The SUV was later found burnt out in Harkaway.

Southern Metro Regional Crime Squad police are seeking a man described as mid-20’s, Middle Eastern appearance, medium build, wearing glasses, a grey Nike hoodie and black pants.
