Men hijack delivery driver then crash into parked cars

 A fast food delivery driver has been hijacked in south Belfast

A fast food delivery driver has been hijacked in south Belfast - the second such attack in the last week.

The man was targeted by two men after he pulled up outside a property on Claremont Street, off the Lisburn Road, at around 11.45pm yesterday.

The men threatened the driver. One of them pulled him from his silver Volkswagen Bora while the other man grabbed the car keys.

The car then sped off towards the Lisburn Road.

Police said the man was not injured but had been left badly shaken.

The stolen car crashed into two parked cars on Donegall Road at around 11.54pm. No one was injured but the parked cars were damaged.

Several minutes later, the stolen car was spotted being driven dangerously on Ballygomartin Road in Ballymagarry.

Police checked the area but could not find the car.

Officers have appealed to anyone who was in the Claremont Street, Donegall Road or Ballygomartin areas late last night, or who saw a silver car being driven dangerously, to contact them.

One of the attackers had a heavy build and stubble. He was wearing a blue football top. The second man had a slim build, was unshaven and wore a grey top.
