Spate of Belfast hijackings continues

The spate of car hijackings in Belfast has continued with the theft of two more vehicles on Monday.

On the Lisburn Road, a man ordered a woman passenger from a car. She refused and as the man drove away, passers-by helped stop the vehicle.

Four hours later, at 21.15 GMT, a woman was forced by three men to hand over her car keys in Donegall Street.

They drove off and 15 minutes later the car was found crashed and abandoned in Norglen Parade.

At least 10 cars have been hijacked in the city in the past two weeks.
