Woman is dragged into car and raped in Belfast

By Catherine McCurry

A woman has been raped in Belfast after a man dragged her into a car as she walked along a busy road in the east of the city.

The PSNI say the woman was attacked on the Sydenham Bypass on Saturday night between 10pm and 11pm.

The man approached the woman who was walking along the route towards Holywood between Dee Street and George Best Belfast City Airport.

The woman managed to get out of the car following the attack.

The man, who was driving a dark coloured car, then made off along the bypass in the direction of Holywood.

He was described as being aged in his 30s and was wearing a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up.

Detectives are now investigating the report of the serious sexual assault.

Detective Inspector Zoe McKee is appealing for anyone who noticed this vehicle or observed any suspicious activity on the country-bound lane of the bypass on Saturday night or anyone with any information to contact detectives at Ladas Drive on 101.
