Woman dragged from car in Belfast

Detectives in Belfast are appealing for information following an incident where a woman was dragged from her vehicle yesterday evening.

The 23-year-old woman had stopped in her black Renault Clio at 7pm at the junction of Hardcastle Street and Bankmore Street and was approached by two males.

A second man then entered the car and they took off in the direction of the Dublin Road. He is described as being about 5ft 8ins tall with short dark hair and a weathered face and was wearing a grey hooded top pulled over his face.

The young woman did not suffer any injuries, however she was left shaken by the ordeal.
