Police are asking calling for the public’s assistance to identify two men who forced another man to drive from Coraki to Woodburn before assaulting him and stealing his credit card.
About 3.40pm yesterday (Tuesday August 28), a 46-year-old man pulled over on the side of East Coraki Road at Coraki was approached by two males.
One produced a knife and the pair forced the man to get back into the vehicle and drive them through Woodburn and south onto the M1.
They ordered him to pull into a highway rest area before repeatedly assaulting the man and stealing his credit card.
The two males then fled the area on foot.
The 46-year-old man suffered facial and leg injuries.
