Detectives from the Moorabool Crime Investigation Unit say a a light blue EB model Ford Falcon was on the incorrect side of Trentham-Spring Hill Road before it forced the victim's vehicle onto grass beside the road.

The driver of the Ford then got out of his car and produced a firearm from the rear seat.

The victim quickly returned to his vehicle and drove off as the other man pointed the firearm toward him.

Police have released an image of a man they wish to speak to.

The man is said to be Caucasian in appearance, 45 to 50-years-old, softly spoken, 172cm tall with a solid build, grey hair and appeared unshaven with grey stubble.

He was wearing a knitted brown jumper, blue jeans and appeared scruffy in appearance.
