Police have released CCTV images of a man who may know more about a terrifying carjacking at gunpoint at Newcastle University.

A 19-year-old was forced from his Mazda 3 by a man who threatened him with a gun while he sat in the carpark on University Drive, Callaghan on Saturday.

The thief took off towards Jesmond before the stolen vehicle was involved in a road rage incident near the Newcastle Inner City Bypass and Maitland Road, Sandgate later that day.

Detectives are keen to speak to a man described as Caucasian in appearance, with a tanned complexion, of a medium build, and with dark wavy hair.

He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, black motorcycle helmet, black tracksuit pants and work boots.

Anyone with info is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
