At approximately 10.30pm, a woman was assaulted while she was in a car, believed to be a black Vauxhall Corsa. A young male tried to take her car keys but the woman was able to drive away.

A 15 year old male was later arrested in connection with this incident. He has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
