Three men aged in their 20s were arrested in west Belfast on Saturday, April 19 in connection with the hijacking of a car in the Longwood Road area.

The men are said to be “assisting police with their enquiries” into the incident on Friday evening (April 18), when the driver of a black VW Golf was approached by an unknown male in the car park of a retail complex. The male, who got out of a silver-coloured people carrier, threatened the motorist with a knife before taking his car and driving off.

Detectives have appealed for witnesses.
