A WOMAN has told of the terrifying moment two hooded men pounced on her car as she stopped at traffic lights.
Steph Johnson, 25, said she has not slept since the encounter, which took place on the A548 Tanlan, Ffynnongroyw, near Holywell.
The alleged offenders, both dressed in black clothing and wearing hoods, tried to open her locked car doors as she stopped at the lights.
Miss Johnson, from Shotton, was on her way home at about 9pm on Saturday after leaving a family member’s house in Trelogan.
“It was pitch black and there was no one around,” she said.
“Both men were wearing snoods covering their face. It was scary.”
Miss Johnson said she regularly travels along the A548 to visit family – but the frightening incident has put her off using the road.
“They tried the doors and when they realised they were locked they stepped away,” she said.
“Luckily the doors lock automatically. I looked around for other cars – but I just went within seconds.
“It didn’t sink in what had happened until I drove all the way home and told my mum.
“She was just shocked,everyone was shocked.
“It wasn’t until it sunk in I realised how serious it could have actually been.
“You just don’t know what they were going to do.”
She added: “I have not slept since it happened and I have not ate.
“When everyone keeps asking me about it I keep seeing it. It’s OK when I keep myself busy.”
Police were called to the scene and officers conducted a search of the area. But there was no sign of the two men and yesterday there had been no arrests in connection with the incident.
Miss Johnson said her “first concern” was other motorists in the area and following the encounter she took to social networking site Facebook to warn the community and highlight what had happened.
The message, which alerts prople in the area to be aware of the incident, has since been shared more than 1,500 times on the site.
She has also warned anyone driving through the area to keep their car doors locked.
A police spokesman said they are investigating the matter and are urging
anyone with information to contact 101.
