The men were in a blue Renault Clio when the incident happened at the Vale Centre shortly after 10pm on Friday.

A dark Volkswagen Golf pulled up and a woman got out. She was joined by the vehicle's driver - a man with a screwdriver.

They threatened the occupants of the Clio, forcing them out of the car.

The armed man, the woman and another man got into the car and headed off towards the direction of the Culmore Road.

A police spokesman said that the all three men were left badly shaken.

It is believed that their mobile phones were left in the car during the incident.

Police found the stolen vehicle burnt out out in Derry shortly before 6am on Saturday.

It was located in a carpark at Alder Road, just off Culmore Road.

Police enquiries are continuing.

Investigating officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the hijacking of the car, or it being abandoned, to contact them.
