Children in knife hijack of mobility scooter

A woman in her 50s was robbed by a gang of knife-wielding children believed to be just 12 years old, police have said.

The woman was returning to her mobility scooter in the Abbey Ring area, near Holywood, last Tuesday at about 7pm when the youths approached her.

One of them asked if they could try the scooter and when she refused, he produced a knife and demanded money.

Two youths took the scooter, but were stopped by a passing driver.
