Lo calls for drivers to be vigilant following 6th car hijacking in Belfast in 10 days

Alliance South Belfast MLA Anna Lo has urged drivers to be vigilant following a 6th car hijacking in 10 days in Belfast. A female driver had parked her car on John Street on Friday morning when a man in a hooded top pulled her from her vehicle before driving off with her car.

Anna Lo MLA said: “I would urge people to be vigilant when out driving their car. The fact that this is the sixth car hijacking in ten days shows how serious a problem this is and I would urge the police to put extra resources in place to prevent this type of crime and reassure the public.

“I hope this woman is able to get over what must have been a traumatic experience.

“I would urge anybody with any information about this or any of the other car hijackings to contact the police. This type of crime can be a particularly horrific experience for the victim, so I hope that those people responsible for these car hijackings are swiftly brought to justice before the courts. “
