After getting into the driver’s seat, it’s alleged a woman walked up to the window and threatened the 59-year-old with a weapon before ordering her out of the car.

Terrified, the woman complied and stepped back out of her car at which point the armed woman and another man allegedly jumped inside and took off.

Thankfully, the woman was not physically injured in the incident.

Police are still searching for her car, a grey 2012 Mazda 300 with NSW registration CGJ25Y, and the couple who stole it.

The male driver is described as being unshaven and approximately 183cm tall with a slim build. He was wearing a grey hoodie.

The woman is described as being aged in her late 20s and having a slim build with a tanned complexion. She had her hair in plats and was wearing a black jumper and dark pants.
