A man making a fast food delivery in west Belfast has been hijacked at knife-point.

The driver had just delivered food to an address at Ladymar Walk off Albert Street and was returning to his car at around 9.40pm yesterday when he was threatened.

A man armed with a knife approached the driver and demanded money and the keys to his silver Hyundai.

The hijacker then drove off in the car. 

The delivery driver was not injured but has been left shaken.

Police said the hijacker was around 5’ 10’’ and of thin build with dark hair. He wore dark grey bottoms, a dark grey top and dark trainers.  

Detectives said a woman is believed to have spoken to the victim shortly before the crime happened.

Police have appealed to the woman to get in touch. They also asked anyone who saw two men acting suspiciously shortly before the hijacking or anyone with information to contact them.

The PSNI can be contacted on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
