Man injured in attack during car theft

A MAN had to be treated for injuries he sustained after he was attacked by another male who then stole his car.
The victim returned to his home in Ard Lonan, Long Lane, Letterkenny, in the early hours of Sunday, March 13 between 4.30am and 4.40am.
He was parking his car, an ‘02 LH’ silver Yaris when he was approached by a male who demanded that he hand over his car key.
He was subsequently assaulted by the male, who then drove the car further up Long Lane.
The victim sustained injuries, none of which are believed to be life threatening but required medical treatment.
The stolen car was recovered by gardaí at Kirkstown, Letterkenny, later that morning shortly after 6am. The offending male was wearing light coloured trousers and a dark coloured top.
Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have observed the male in the area of Long Lane at the time in question to contact them. If anyone believes they may have captured the male or stolen car on their dashcam footage is also being urged to make the footage available to gardaí.
