One man has been arrested, while the search continues for up to three others accused of a Surfers Paradise carjacking.
A 25-year-old man from Korea was sleeping in his rented Nissan X-Trail at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Peninsula Drive early on Tuesday morning.
He was allegedly threatened at knife-point by a group of men who took off with the hire car as well has his phone and watch.
Police searched a Southport home a few hours later where a 29-year-old man was taken in for questioning.
He has since been charged over the incident and is due to front Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
