Woman fights off would-be car hijacker in Lisburn

A gutsy woman fought off a hijacker who tried to seize her car in Lisburn, police revealed today.

The 25-year-old stopped at traffic lights on the Hillhall Road in her black BMW when the man tried to force her out of the car.

She managed to push him back, shouting and screaming, and when a number of passers-by went to her aid the assailant ran off.

Police appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident on Wednesday evening to contact them.

The man is described as being 6ft tall, slim, and wearing a dark beanie hat, white hoodie and jeans.
