MELBOURNE, June 23 (Xinua) -- Senior politicians in Victoria have expressed serious concern at the spate of carjackings in the state.

Figures released by the Crime Statistics Agency on Thursday showed that the number of carjackings - a violent form of theft where criminals force drivers from their car then steal the vehicle - had risen by 80 percent in the state over the 12 months to March 2016.

""The Liberal Nationals Coalition has today introduced legislation to make carjacking a specific and serious crime in Victoria,"" O'Donohue told NewsCorp on Thursday.

The legislation to be introduced, which would see carjacking offenders be offered 15-25 years in jail, will be debated when Parliament resumes in August.

""Carjackings were virtually unknown in Victoria until relatively recently but as the two recent incidents in Malvern show, they have become all too common, causing enormous angst in the community,"" he said.
