"We have set up an incident room and we are exploring a number of possible lines of enquiry. We are reviewing CCTV footage from the area, but we also need the continued help from local people.

"I would also ask any members of the public who have a dash cam fitted to their vehicle, and were travelling on Glenbawn Avenue, Glenbawn Square, Bryanswell Road, Bell Steele Road, Pantridge Road, Stewartstown Road or Colinwell Road between 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday, February 13 to contact detectives at Musgrave.
