Two men, one carrying a knife, approached two women in the Station Street area of east Belfast shortly before 7.30pm on Monday.

They demanded the women hand over the keys to their car and the men made off in the vehicle.

Shortly before 8pm, an employee was stabbed when a man threatened staff at a shop on the Ligoniel Road.

The 43-year-old victim was treated in hospital for a stab wound to his shoulder, which is not believed to be life-threatening. The would-be robber made off empty-handed.

Around 15 minutes later, a man armed with a knife stole cash from a shop in the Main Street area of Glenavy.

Just after 8.30pm, two vehicles crashed in the Ballysillan Park area. Two children, aged four and ten, were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.

Two men, aged 18 and 28, are being questioned about the carjacking and robberies.
