Queensland Police are investigating the robbery of an 82-year-old man in Rockhampton in the early hours of this morning.

Police say the man had pulled over and exited his vehicle, a white Holden Cruze, in Park Avenue at 4.30am when a white Toyota Camry sedan pulled over behind his vehicle.

“The man was approached by a woman, described as first nations in appearance, slim build. She spoke to him briefly and returned to the Camry when a man pushed him to the ground from behind and fled in the 82-year-old’s car, followed by the Camry,” Police said.

Police would like to speak to anyone who was in these areas at those times and anyone with relevant CCTV or dash cam footage.
