Disgust at Belfast hijacking - McCann

20 November, 2016 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA for west Belfast Jennifer McCann has spoken of her anger at those who pulled a woman from her car on the Pembrooke Loop Road in Poleglass.

Speaking today Ms McCann said:

“The incident where a woman was pulled from her car by three men who then drove off in it is worrying and has angered this community. Quite obviously the woman was left very shaken.

“It is a despicable attack on a lone woman. It seems to be a growing method of aggravated car theft that we are seeing across the city.

“While many newer car models do have automatic locking systems there are those which don’t.  I would urge those who are travelling alone to put safety first and ensure their doors are locked while driving.

“I would also appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious preceding this callous theft to report those details, no matter how small to the PSNI.”
