The man, who had had a few drinks too many on a night out on the tiles in Oslo, decided to have a nap in the back of his car.
While he was asleep, two women in their thirties decided to steal the car and drive it over the border to Sweden, according to the local Göteborgs-Posten (GP) newspaper.
A few hours later, the man was shocked to find himself unceremoniously dumped outside of a Gothenburg train station by the two women who seemingly had had enough of his presence in the vehicle.
The man, who didn’t know what to do, contacted the police and reported his car stolen. He was given a bed for the night by the police officers, according to the paper.
Waking up on Wednesday morning the man was eager to get home and was driven to the terminal by the police. However, on the way to the train station, he suddenly spotted his car on the road.
“I was bloody lucky,” said the 50-year-old, according to GP.
The police arrested the two women in the car and brought them in to the station for testing, suspecting they were driving under the influence.
Police are unable to comment on the man’s story until the women have been questioned but could confirm to the paper that the car was registered in Norway.
In it, police also found what they suspect to be stolen goods.
Around 5pm on Wednesday, the man was handed the keys to his car and could start driving back to Oslo, according to GP.
The women are under suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
