Pulling over to have a nap on the side of the road near Aongatete ended with a motorist being assaulted and robbed.
A police spokesperson says a 25-year-old man was robbed after he had pulled over to have a sleep in his car on Walker Road, just after 12.30am.
Two unknown men approached the driver, punched him and demanded money, before stealing his car keys and cell phone, says police.
The pair were last seen running into neighbouring orchards – heading to two separate directions.
A dog unit was used to track the offenders, but to no avail, says police.
Police enquiries to locate the offenders are ongoing.
Anyone with information about the crime are asked to contact their nearest police station.
