A PSNI spokesperson said: “Yesterday afternoon a older female was approached while sat in her car at the Asda, Portadown by another female who she did not know.

“The ‘seller’ was approximately 25 years of age with short hair and was wearing dark clothes and spoke with a Southern Irish accent and accompanied by an older female who had dirty fair hair and was wearing a red coat.
“They both left in a dark colored vehicle.
“Did you see this interaction, can you remember either of the females described above or did anyone approach you in similar circumstances yesterday? please give us a call on 101 if you have any information. Reference number is 493 24/01/19.”
