Detectives investigating a hijacking in the Crumlin Road area of north Belfast on Saturday morning have made an arrest.

They say a 41-year-old man has been detained on suspicion of hijacking and is helping police with their enquiries.

Police have been investigating two car hijackings in north Belfast, one of which targeted a nurse coming off shift.

The first incident happened just before 8am on Saturday when a man approached the nurse in her parked red Mini Cooper on the Crumlin Road just after she had left work at the Mater Hospital.

The man, who was wearing a grey hooded top and grey bottoms, opened the car door and ordered the woman out.

He then drove off in the direction of Annesley Street.

PSNI Detective Sergeant Wilson said at the time: “The woman, while physically uninjured, has understandably been left shaken.”
