POLICE at Strand Road are appealing for information after a woman was threatened with a knife.

At around 8.30pm on Monday, 26th, the woman was walking at Stephen’s Court in the Ballymagroarty area when a man approached her.

Constable Armstrong, the investigating officer, said: “The man held a knife towards the woman’s throat and made threats to her. He was accompanied by another male, who was not involved in the incident but was present at the time.

“This assault occurred in the vicinity of a mobile shop in a residential area and so there is a possibility that there were other people in the area at the time or immediately before or after.
