Hunt for men who assaulted and robbed driver at Marsden

DETECTIVES are searching for two men who intercepted a vehicle, assaulted the driver and stole items from the car at Marsden overnight.

Around 12.45am two 19-year-old men and a 20-year-old woman were travelling in a car on Burrinjuck Street when two vehicles pulled in front of their car at the intersection of Timberlee Drive.

The car manoeuvred around both vehicles and travelled to the end of Timberlee Drive.

The other vehicles followed them and blocked the car at the end of a cul-de-sac.

The male drivers of each vehicle confronted the occupants of the car before demanding they hand over cash and mobiles phones. It is believed one man was armed with a firearm.

One of the men then struck the 19-year-old man in the face through the driver's window.

The pair then stole wallets and mobile phones from the occupants.

The first man, who was driving a dark vehicle, was described as being Caucasian in appearance, aged in his late 20s, about 170cm tall with a slim build and wearing a black top.

The second man, who was driving a dark hatchback, is described as being Caucasian in appearance, aged in his early 20s, about 170cm tall with sandy blonde curly hair and wearing a blue hoodie.

Around 1am the victims' stolen credit cards were used to purchase items at a fast food outlet and at a service station at Meadowbrook. Police have released CCTV images (pictured) of the men who they believed fraudulently made the transactions at the service station.

The pair attended the service station in a stolen black 2006 Honda Jazz with registration 053 JQU.

Investigations into the incident are continuing and anyone who may recognise the men pictured in the CCTV images are urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
