Armed thugs try to steal woman's car

By Staff Reporter

Two men - one armed with a knife - kicked and punched a car after the female driver locked the doors to thwart the would-be hijackers.

Police in Antrim are appealing for witnesses after the attempted hijacking on the Greystone Road at around 5.30am on Saturday.

The woman, in her 40s was driving to work in a green Rover car, heading towards the M2, when she stopped at traffic lights, near the library and shops.

"As she waited, two males, described as being aged between 17-24, one with a knife, approached the car and tried to open the driver's door," police said.

"Fortunately, the driver had time to lock the doors as they approached. The two males kicked and thumped the car when they were unable to gain entry. The lady was left shocked but unharmed.

"We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen these two males or anything suspicious in the area around this time."
