Around 2.45am the 32-year-old man in his sedan in a shopping centre carpark when a stolen white Nissan Navara dual cab utility with three men and a boy inside parked nearby.
Two men got out of the vehicle, one of them armed with a sledge hammer and the other with a metal pole. They smashed the driver's side window and assaulted the man with the sledge hammer.
They demanded he exit the vehicle and hand over the keys. The man complied with their demands and the group drove off in both vehicles.
The man sustained facial injuries during the assault and was treated by paramedics at the scene.
Two of the man's dogs ran from the vehicle, with one returning, however 'Bun Bun' - a white Staffordshire Bull Terrier with a brindle eye patch, remains missing.
Police later located the Navara abandoned following a traffic crash on the Logan Motorway at Meadowbrook around 4am. The 37-year-old male driver of the second vehicle involved in the crash was not injured.

One of the men involved is described as being about 188cm tall with a slim build, dark complexion and was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, a hat and a black and red t-shirt covering his face.
Police are investigating the group being involved in three other burglary incidents at Canungra and Beaudesert shortly before the robbery.
