A 41-year-old German woman stopped at the scene of an apparent accident on an isolated road in the Salzburger Anif, only to be robbed by the 'victim' at knifepoint.

The woman was driving her car along the Sony Strasse in Lower Alm on Wednesday at around 5:30 p.m., when she saw a motorcycle lying on the street, alongside a recumbent man.

She stopped her car, and went to assist the man.  He then made an amazing recovery, and threatened her with a white box-cutter.

The man stole all her money, and made off on the Honda motorcycle, which had a Salzburg number plate.

The woman described the perpetrator as about 1.8 metres tall, slender and with brown shoulder-length hair. He was wearing glasses and a helmet.
