A 48 year old man has been arrested following a vehicle hijacking in Ballymena.
Detective Chief Inspector Catherine Magee said: “At around 4.45pm on Thursday (September 25), the driver of a silver Honda Accord parked his vehicle on Thomas Street leaving two male relatives onboard.
A short time later an unknown male jumped into the driver’s seat telling the two men to get out.
When they refused he drove off eventually stopping the vehicle a few miles away and making off on foot.
The arrested male was detained in the early hours of this morning and remains in custody at this time.”
