Two arrested after woman hijacked by man armed with Stanley knife

Police have arrested two teenagers after a woman was forced from her car by a man armed with a Stanley knife in north Belfast.

Shortly after 10am on Sunday, a man ordered the woman out of her car as she was parking outside her home on Victoria Gardens.

The hijacker made of in the woman's car, a Honda Jazz, in the direction of the Cavehill.

Although the woman was not injured in the incident she was left badly shaken.

A short time later police received reports that a silver car had collided with two parked cars on nearby Inver Gardens.

This was followed by reports of a silver car driving erratically in the Ross Road area.

Inspector Roy Watton said: “Police attended the area and subsequently arrested two men aged 17 and 19 years on suspicion of hijacking and other related offences and the car was recovered.

“They are currently assisting police with their enquiries."

He added: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed these incident or who has any information which may be of assistance to contact Police at Tennant on the non-emergency number 101."
