A 21 year old man has been arrested and charged in South Gippsland yesterday following a alleged car chase.

The man of no fixed address is set to face the Latrobe Valley Magistrates Court today after he was charged with 74 offences, which include aggravated carjacking, false imprisonment, sexual assault and vehicle theft.

Police will allege the man stole a vehicle in Leongatha yesterday, which he then crashed; it burst into flames on McCartin Street around 10:30am before a woman was assaulted and the man took her vehicle.

He then ditched the vehicle and stole a third car, and was later arrested 70 kilometres away in Binginwarri.
