A WOMAN IN her 30s was left shaken after three men carjacked her vehicle in Belfast this morning.

At about 6.45am, the victim was driving into Pembroke Loop Road in the west of the city when a man ran in front of the car.

Another man then opened the door on the driver’s side and forced her from the vehicle. The two men were joined by a third accomplice. All three got into the car and drove off.

Two of the men are described as being about 6′ tall. One was wearing a blue Adidas tracksuit top, black bottoms and a black cap. The other had his face covered with a striped scarf and was wearing a hooded top. The third male was wearing a dark-coloured coat.

The car – a black Citroen C5 estate – has not been recovered.

Police have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
