Children rescued from stolen vehicle after bystanders stop Belfast carjacking


Two children are unharmed after bystanders stepped in to stop a carjacking.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said one man was arrested after a car in which the youngsters were in was stolen on Boucher Crescent in Belfast on Saturday evening.

A woman got out of the vehicle just before a man jumped into the driver's seat and drove off.

The PSNI said members of the public managed to stop the vehicle and a man fled the scene on foot.

A man in his 30s was arrested a short time later and officers appealed for witnesses to come forward.
