Just before 10 pm, it was reported that whilst parked in the Innis Walk area a female driver of black Mitsubishi Colt was approached by two males. One of the males opened the driver’s door and dragged her from the vehicle.
The car was later found burnt in the Camcross Park area a short time later.
The victim was not injured but was left badly shaken.
