Two men and a woman flagged down a silver Suzuki SX 4 in the Norfolk Parade area on Monday shortly before 7am.
The woman approached the passenger door, trying to open it, but when the driver got out of the car, in an attempt to chase them away, he was attacked by one of the men.
The trio then fled the scene in what is understood to have been a silver Toyota car, with the woman driving.
She is described as being in her 20s, of slim build, with shoulder length hair, and wearing a navy tracksuit.
One of the men is described as being well built, around 5ft 9in tall and having ginger hair.
Police are appealing for drivers to be vigilant of personal security and want any witnesses to this incident to come forward.
