A woman was left badly shaken after she was pulled from her car during a hijacking in Larne.

Police said one man got in the passenger side of the parked blue Audi A4 car while another pulled the woman from the driver's seat on Friday just before 10.30pm on High Street.

They made off along the Inver Road.

The 22-year-old victim was treated at the scene by paramedics and was said to be left badly shaken.

Both men are believed to be in their late teens and were of slim build wearing dark hooded tops and scarves over their faces.

Sergeant John Hamilton said: "I would appeal to anyone who noticed these two males in the area, anyone who knows the whereabouts of the car, or anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact Larne Police Station on the non-emergency number, quoting reference number 1283 of 04/11/16. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111."
