The victim found a break in the traffic and drove away.

Half an hour later the black Holden utility stopped at the intersection of Mandurah Road and Allnut Street and the men exited the vehicle.

They approached a Toyota Landcruiser which was stopped behind them and approached the male driver.

The man from Dawesville entered the passenger seat while the other man approached the drivers side and smashed the window with the butt of a hand gun.

At this time a police vehicle attended the scene and arrested the men during which time a replica handgun was located.
