Two men - aged 17-years and 19-years - have been arrested after a woman was ordered out of her car in north Belfast at knifepoint.

The incident happened just after 10am on January 18 as the woman pulled up outside her home in the Victoria Gardens area. She was ordered out of her car by a man wielding a Stanley knife who made off in her vehicle - a silver Honda Jazz - towards Cavehill.

The woman was left badly shaken by her ordeal.

Police received reports the silver car had collided with two parked cars in the Inver Avenue area and that it was being driven erratically in the Ross Road area.
