Two men, believed to be in their mid to late teens and wearing dark hoodies, forced the woman out of her car about 1pm in Stanley Street in Tokoroa.

Police said one of the young men pointed a gun at the woman.

The men drove off, heading north towards Billah Street in the town.

The car, with the registration DTT185, has not been found.

The police say the two young men shouldn't be approached.

Last week, two women were dragged from their car at a New Plymouth intersection.

Four young people were arrested and charged over that incident.
