A 24-year-old man arrested over a Gerringong carjacking will face 21 charges in court on Wednesday.
Police allege the man was involved in a series of incidents starting at 4.45pm on Monday at Gerringong where a woman was the victim of a carjacking at knifepoint.
The car involved was spotted on Monday evening and a short police pursuit took place.
On Tuesday at 8am the blue Mitsubishi was spotted again, this time travelling north on the Princes Highway at Broughton.
Police followed the car - containing the 24-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman - with the help of highway patrol officers, Polair and the Dog Unit.
After the car hit another vehicle it was dumped at a property in Austral Park Road, where the pair allegedly stole a silver Kia and kept driving north.
The Kia got stuck in heavy traffic at the intersection of the Illawarra Highway and Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail.
Police tried to reach the car but the driver allegedly rammed another vehicle out of the way to escape.
A police car was also rammed as the driver headed south along the Princes Highway.
The Kia stopped after it hit three other vehicles at the Creamery Road intersection, where the pair jumped from the car and ran away.
They were caught after a short foot chase and were both taken to Lake Illawarra police station.
The 24-year-old man was charged with a string of offences, including robbery with an offensive weapon, two counts of stealing a car, drug possession, dangerous driving, police pursuit, driving while disqualified.
Police will also allege in court that he was involved in the police pursuit in Nowra on Monday.
The 28-year-old was charged with three offences including stealing a motor vehicle.
They were both kept in custody and will appear at Wollongong Court on Wednesday.
