A good Samaritan who stopped to help a woman whose car had apparently broken down has been ambushed by two men who then stole his car.
The 20-year-old man pulled over when he saw a woman standing beside a green Ford Falcon sedan that had apparently broken down on at Helensvale on the Gold Coast on Sunday night.
But when he got out of his car to offer help, two men approached and demanded his keys.
"The man tried to run away but was forced to the ground and threatened by the men, before throwing his keys onto the road," police said.
The victim was left stunned as the men fled in his car and the woman got back into the green Ford and drove off.
The victim suffered bruising during the incident.
Police are appealing for public help to find those responsible for the incident on Siganto Drive about 9.15pm (AEST).
The victim's stolen car is a blue 2005 model Holden Avalanche, Queensland registration 488 SRQ.
The two men involved in the crime are described as being of Pacific Islander appearance, around 190cm tall, of a solid build, and aged their mid-30s.
The woman is also described as being of Pacific Islander appearance with blonde hair, in her mid-30s, around 160cm tall and of a slim build.
