A TAKEAWAY DELIVERY driver is said to be “very shaken” after his car was hijacked in Belfast last night.

The incident happened in the Shankill Road area at around 9.45pm. The driver said he was pulled from his car by two hooded males, thought to be in their late teens or early 20s.

They then made off in the car, a black Ford Fiesta. It was later located by police in the Ross Road area and has now been recovered for a forensic examination.

Detective Sergeant Michael Hawthorne said: “The delivery driver was obviously left very shaken by this incident and we are keen to identify and locate the culprits responsible.”

He urged anyone with information to contact the PSNI by calling 101. People can also get in touch anonymously via the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
