They say that at 8.10 pm three males entered a house and assaulted the householder.
The thugs then took the keys to a black Audi A6.
It is believed they made off in the car in the direction of Finaghy Road North along Diamond Gardens.
The males are described as all being in their mid to late 30’s, between 5’10”-6’ of medium and heavy build.
One male had a light blue hooded raincoat with the hood pulled over his head, whilst the other two had dark coloured raincoats with their hoods pulled up.
It is believed that all three men had light coloured tracksuit bottoms on.
One of the males had a small knife.
