A homeless man was ordered held without bail after his arraignment Thursday in Waltham District Court on charges that he hijacked a young woman’s car in Waltham after threatening her with a bloody syringe. Detective Lieutenant Joseph Brooks of the Waltham police said that on Tuesday morning, Steve Steverding, 30, approached a 17-year-old girl in a CVS parking lot and threatened to inject her with the syringe if she did not give up her car. The teenager obliged, and Steverding fled, Brooks said. Steverding was arrested in Cambridge Wednesday night, according to Brooks. Steverding did not enter a plea to charges of armed carjacking, attempted murder, and assault with a dangerous weapon, Brooks and the court clerk said.
