Boy forced from car by thieves

Thieves forced a young boy from his father’s car last night at a garage forecourt in Co Armagh.

The 11-year-old boy was sitting in the vehicle waiting for his father, who was paying for petrol, when the men forced the boy from the car and drove off.

The incident took place at a garage at Junction 10 on the M1 near Lurgan.

Elsewhere overnight, two people have been arrested following an attack on a woman in Londonderry early on Friday morning.

The woman was standing outside a cinema on Strand Road at around 2.30am when she was pushed to the ground before being kicked in the face and head.

The victim is currently being in hospital for her injuries.

Police have appealed for anyone with information on either incident to contact them on 028 9065 0222
