Two men opened the driver's door of a blue Nissan Primera car as it stopped at the junction of Gardiner Street and Peter's Hill at around 6pm on Saturday.

One of the men threatened the driver with a knife before he was pulled from the car.

The carjackers made off in the vehicle, which was found on fire in the Whitehouse area of the Shore Road in Newtownabbey a short time later.

The carjackers were described as being about 6' tall, of medium build and wearing dark clothing.

They were both wearing black hats and scarves covering their faces.
