Police have appealed for information after a female fast food delivery driver had her car stolen by two youths armed with knives in Belfast on Monday night.

Police received a report of a robbery in the Pinkerton Walk area shortly before 11:30pm.

It was reported that a female delivery driver was threatened by two males armed with knives, as she made her way to a delivery in the area.

The males made off in her grey Citreon Picasso vehicle towards the Shore Road area before turning right towards Belfast City Centre. The vehicle was located abandoned in the vicinity of Victoria Parade, with a knife located close to the vehicle.

Damage was caused to the front wheels of the vehicle as a result of the incident.

The two males are described as being aged between 15-18 years old, 5”4 in height with balaclavas or scarves covering their faces. Both males were wearing dark grey hooded tops.

“Enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference number 1434 8/10/18," Detective Sergeant Moffett said.

"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
