Woman threatened with knife and has car stolen in Derry

A woman has been threatened with a knife and had her car stolen by four men in Derry.

She had just got into her car after leaving a shop on the Buncrana Road at about 9 o clock last night when the men surrounded the vehicle.

They threatened her with a knife and pulled her from the car. They drove off in the direction of the border.

Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

They say they are particularly keen to speak to two men who tried to prevent the car being driven away.

Foyle MLA Mark H Durkan said this hijacking is a worrying development..
