Three questioned after car hijack

 

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is questioning three men following a car hijacking in south Belfast during which a police vehicle was rammed.

Three men leaving a restaurant in Botanic Avenue confronted a man getting out of his car in India Street early yesterday.

One of them produced what was believed to be a firearm and seized the vehicle. The victim flagged down a passing police patrol which was later rammed as the men tried to escape.
