Belfast hit and run: Police appeal for witnesses as four men held on suspected of attempted murder

Four men have been arrested after a man and a woman were struck by a car while walking along the Andersonstown Road in west Belfast in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Police said the car failed to stop and they are treating the incident as suspected attempted murder.

The man and woman, both in their 20s, were struck by a black BMW shortly after 2.30am as they walked along the Andersonstown Road near the Kennedy Centre.

The victims were taken to hospital for treatment for a number of injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.

A short time later a black BMW, believed to be the one involved in the incident, was found abandoned in Gransha Park where it struck two parked cars.

Four men aged 27, 28, 28 and 30, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remain in police custody at this time.

Detective Inspector Richard Thornton is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident close to the Kennedy Centre or who witnessed the black BMW car being abandoned in Gransha Park to contact Detectives in Musgrave Police Station on 101 quoting reference 81 of 06/06/17.

Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
