Police are appealing for information following the report of a hijacking on the Antrim Road near the junction of Chichester Road, Belfast yesterday, Monday, 19 January.
At approximately 10.40pm Police received a report that as a female was walking towards her car, a black VW Polo, two males, aged approximately 19 years and wearing hoods ran from the direction of Chichester Road and demanded that she hand over the keys to her car. One of these males was brandishing a hammer. The female then attempted to run away from them, but they caught her and grabbed her keys and made off in her car.
The woman was not injured, however she was left very badly shaken.
