A woman had her car hijacked on the Letterkenny Road last night.

Shortly after 8.30pm a woman, who was sitting in her parked Toyota Avensis on the Letterkenny Road near the Bray Head Road, was approached by two males who forced her from the vehicle. The males then drove off towards Derry in her vehicle. The car was later found burnt out at the junction of Creevagh and Glassagh Roads. The vehicle was completely destroyed.

One of the males is described as being 26/27, of slim build, 5ft 7" and wearing a dark zip up top and a scarf. The other man is described as being 26/27 years old, of medium build, 5ft 9" with short brown hair, and was wearing a dark zip up jacket.
