At about 8pm, a 51-year-old woman was getting into her car outside of the supermarket, when a man got into the front seat and reportedly threatened her with a claw hammer, before trying to steal her handbag and car keys.

The man left the car empty handed and got into what is described as a black people carrier type car.

Detectives say the woman suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident.

The man has been described as white, in his early 40s and of a slim build. He is thought to have been wearing a cream coloured baseball cap and jeans.
