Detectives in Co Tyrone are appealing for information about a kidnapping and robbery in Dungannon.

Police say that two men forced a man into a white van on the Gortgonis Road at around 6.30pm yesterday.

The 36-year-old was driven around for about 20 minutes, during which time he was assaulted and threatened with a crossbow.

The man escaped at Derrytresk Road.

A PSNI spokesperson said they were "particularly keen to hear from anyone who noticed a white van in the Gortgonis Road area at around 5.30pm".
