DETECTIVES IN LIMAVADY are appealing for information after a car was hijacked in the town.

Shortly after 10pm, it was reported that a blue Renault Clio was parked in the area. The driver and two passengers were then approached by a dark coloured VW Golf and it is believed that a female passenger of the Golf got out of the car.

The driver of the Golf also got out of the car and is believed to have been armed with a screwdriver.

The driver of the Clio and two other men were demanded to exit the car while the female, the driver of the Golf and another man got into the Clio and headed towards the Culmore Road area.

All three men were left badly shaken and it is believed that their mobile phones were left in the car during the incident.

The car has since been found burnt out in the Foyle area.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the hijacking or who has any other information that could assist the investigation.

They can be contacted at CID at Limavady Police Station by calling the non-emergency number 101.
