A woman in Kilwinning was left with injuries after she was assaulted whilst within her own car by a stranger and then had items stolen from inside by another perpetrator in a sickening incident.

The brazen robbery and assault occurred in broad daylight on May 12 around 11.30am when the 41-year-old was sitting within her parked car on Montgomerie Terrace in the town.
