It is understood that a male approached the woman and her child as they were walking towards her car. The male demanded the keys and then snatched them when the woman refused. The woman was pushed to the ground and sustained slight injuries.
The vehicle was later found burnt out.
Gardai believe that the male may also have been responsible for a similar assault nearby earlier on. He did not manage to start the car on that occasion and fled.
