Woman punched in face by thieves

A woman has been punched in the face during a mugging in Castlewellan.

It happened in the Mourne Park area on 17 January.

Two men approached the 49-year-old at around 9pm and asked her for a light.

When she declined she was punched in the face and had her handbag, which contained a sum of money, stolen.

Police have asked anyone who was in the Lower Square, Mourne Park or the Grange areas of Castlewellan between 8pm and 10pm and who noticed anything suspicious to come forward.
