Belfast fast food delivery driver hijacked at knife point

A fast-food delivery driver has had his vehicle stolen at knife point during an incident in west Belfast.

Police received a report shortly after 9.40pm that the driver, who was making a delivery in the Ladymar Walk area, had returned to his vehicle and was approached by a male who threatened him at knifepoint.

The attacker demanded money and for the man to hand over the keys to the Hyundai i40 he was driving.

The suspect - described as being approximately 5’ 10’’ tall, of skinny build with dark hair and wearing dark grey bottoms, a dark grey top and dark-coloured trainers - then drove off in the car.

Although not injured, the delivery driver was left badly shaken.

Detective Constable Ritchie said: “I want to make a number of appeals today [Wednesday].

“Were you in the area around this time? Did you see what happened? Did you see two males acting suspiciously in the area shortly before the report was made to us? I also want to appeal to a female who is reported to have spoken with the victim shortly before the incident occurred to get in touch.

“Anyone who can assist with our enquiries is asked to call us on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1280 of 28/08/18.”

Alternatively the public can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
