Lo shocked at South Belfast hijacking

Alliance South Belfast MLA Anna Lo has expressed her shock after the hijacking of a van in which the driver was injured when two men threatened him with knives and forced him to hand over the keys to his vehicle.

The hijacking happened on the Maryville road on Tuesday morning. The driver was bundled into the van and was let out on the Andersonstown Road before the two men drove off. Anna herself was the victim of an attempted car hijacking earlier this year.

Anna Lo MLA said: “I was very shocked by this hijacking. This must have been a traumatic experience for the driver. I hope he is able to get over such a horrific incident.

“After having been the victim of an attempted car hijacking, I can empathise with him at this difficult time.

“I would urge anybody with any information about this hijacking to contact the police.”
