Hijackers steal Belfast fast food delivery driver's car

By David Young

A fast food delivery driver has been left shaken after thugs hijacked his car.

The driver was making a delivery in east Belfast on Monday evening when two men approached him, claiming to be armed.

They commandeered his car, driving it a short way down the road.

The two car hijackers then made off on foot. One is described as being in his 20s, approximately 5ft 8ins tall, thin with dirty fair hair and wearing a green top and brown trousers. The other man was approximately 5ft 6ins tall and wore a grey hooded top.

Detective Inspector Michelle Griffin is appealing for anyone with any information about this incident to contact CID at Musgrave Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, or call anonymously via the Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.

It was the second hijacking in the city in as many days.

Two hijackers attacked a driver in west Belfast on Sunday, threatening him with a knife and a broken bottle.

PSNI figures indicate that in 2014 there were more than 2,200 car thefts or related car crimes in Belfast alone.
