A passenger has been dragged from a car after two men wearing balaclavas attacked the vehicle in Craigavon, County Armagh.

Police said the attack on a Volkswagen Passat travelling on Brownlow Road was reported at about 22:30 GMT on Friday.

A man smashed the windscreen of the vehicle with a bat, as well as the driver's side window.

Police said a passenger was dragged from the car and a substance "believed to be petrol was then thrown inside".

"The car was found burnt out a short time later on the Tullygally Road," PSNI Det Sgt Dave Stewart added.

Police have appealed for information about the incident.
