Police have been told the 54-year-old victim found an unknown man with a knife inside his Grimwade Crescent home at 5.30pm.

The man made threats towards the victim and then bound his arms, a police spokeswoman said.

Investigators believe the offender then forced the victim into the passenger seat of his own car and drove  away from the property.

A short time later police spotted the stolen car driving erratically on Warrandyte Road in Langwarrin and attempted to stop the driver.

Police did not pursue the car, but it was later found crashed into an embankment near the intersection of Bevnol and Sunnybank roads.

Two men were found inside the car. Police found the victim sitting in the passenger seat with his arms bound.

Ambulance attended the scene around 9pm Saturday.

The driver, a 47-year-old Frankston man, was arrested and taken to Frankston Hospital with minor cuts, where he remains under police guard.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said the victim was taken to Frankston Hospital with head injuries, in a serious but stable condition.
