The incident took place in Westport around 3:50 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 17 on Bayberry Lane.
According to Lt. Eric Woods of the Westport Police, the victim returned home and pulled into the garage when two suspects entered and assaulted the homeowner while sitting in a blue Aston Martin.
The victim was then forcibly removed from the car and the suspects, who police said may have intimated they were armed, made off with the vehicle, Woods said.
