Detectives are appealing for information after a vehicle was hijacked and set alight in north Belfast this afternoon (Sunday, August 1).
It was reported at 2.50pm that a man had been dragged out of his car in the Hopewell Avenue area before two males got into the vehicle and made off in the direction of the Crumlin Road.
Detective Sergeant Wilson said: "The car was found set alight in the Denmark Street area a short time later. Colleagues from the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service attended and extinguished the blaze.
"This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim.
"Two men, one aged in his thirties and one in his forties, have been arrested and are currently helping with enquiries.
