Officers are continuing to gather any relevant CCTV from in and around the area.
Detective Sergeant Peter Sweeney said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time of this incident to think back and consider if they noticed anything. The taxi is a blue Skoda and you may have seen it and not realised a crime was taking place. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, I would urge them to contact us. It’s imperative we trace these people.”
