A man alleged to have dragged a woman for several hundred metres during a violent carjacking in Brisbane will remain behind bars on remand until his next court appearance.

Theo Fewquandie, 18, did not appear at Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning after his dramatic arrest the night before.

He is facing a raft of serious charges, including unlawful entry of a motor vehicle, robbery with violence, dangerous operation of a vehicle causing grievous bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and unlicensed driving.

Police have since urged anyone with dashcam footage of a man – described as being “Aboriginal in appearance, curly hair in a ‘man bun’ style, black shorts, black T-shirt and a black, white and red hoodie” – to come forward.

Fewquandie, from Ellen Grove, is alleged entered a blue Mitsubishi hatchback parked outside of the Buranda Shopping Centre carpark at 7pm on Monday.

It is alleged the driver had gone inside to collect food from the local Nando’s, leaving a 22-year-old woman waiting in the car.

Fewquandie is alleged to have pushed the woman out of the vehicle, causing her to be dragged several hundred metres before crashing into a wall.

The 22-year-old woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

No application for bail was made on Tuesday morning as Fewquandie’s lawyer asked for an adjournment.

He will return to court on March 1.
