As the victim was looking for something in the vehicle, a dark coloured car pulled up alongside her and 5 suspects got out and approached the victim.

One of the suspects threatened the victim, whilst a second dragged the victim from her vehicle and stolen her mobile phone and car keys.

The five suspects left the scene with the victim’s vehicle, a silver coloured Audi A6 and the original dark coloured vehicle they arrived in.
