Inspector Boyd said: "Prior to the report of the assault, at 1.20am, we received a report of a vehicle matching the description of the Fiesta, being driven erratically in the Donegall road area where it collided with a wall before being driven towards Clonavogie Gardens.

"Our enquiries are at an early stage, however, we believe these two reports may be linked at this time."

Mr Boyd appealed to anyone with information on either of the two reports, or who was in the area at the time, to contact police on 101.
