Police search for three men after Windang carjacking

Police are appealing for information after a woman was pushed to the ground and robbed in a carjacking at Windang on Friday night.

The 26-year-old woman was travelling north along Windang Road when her vehicle came into trouble and stopped about 6pm.

Police have been told the woman stopped near the intersection of Primbee Deviation Road when a white ute, driven by a man and with two male passengers, pulled up alongside her vehicle.

According to a police statement, one of the men pushed the woman to the ground before two of them got into her car and drove off. The third man took her wallet and fled in the ute.

The woman was uninjured and contacted police, who attended a short time later.
