Footage released of elderly woman's carjacking assault © NZ Police Footage released of elderly woman's carjacking assault A teen arrested after an elderly Auckland woman was left with serious facial injuries during a violent carjacking has pleaded not guilty to aggravated robbery.

Lily Pritchard-Davis, 17, faces a raft of charges after an attack on 65-year-old Nancy Voon at a car park in Panmure in September, during which the pensioner was kicked and struck in the head after falling to the ground.

In the Auckland District Court on Wednesday, Pritchard-Davis pleaded not guilty, opting for a jury trial next year.

Appearing in the court by video link, an excited Pritchard-Davis had to be warned by Judge Jonathan Moses to stay quiet as she waved and laughed to friends and family in the public gallery.

She has been remanded in custody and will appear again in court in February.

A video of the attack was spread around social media and viewed thousands of times last month.
