Police released their identities on October 25 in a bid to find them.

On Monday, Hinch allegedly struck a man with the blunt end of a knife while attempting to steal his car in Harlaxton.

The man, who had been sitting in his car when Hinch allegedly opened a car door, drove away from the scene on Goombungee Rd.

He suffered minor injuries.

Police allege Hinch and Bligh then tried to carjack a couple on the same street minutes later.

The man and woman were changing a tyre on Goombungee Rd when a car pulled up beside them.

Hinch and Bligh got out of the car and allegedly threatened them with a meat cleaver, a knife and an axe.

They demanded the man and woman had over the keys, but the pair refused, according to police.

The alleged offenders drove off in the car they had been driving, which was a Hyundai Veloster police believe was stolen in Toowoomba on Sunday.

Officers responded and Bligh was arrested in Harlaxton a short time later.
