The pair, who are believed to have had a German Shepherd and a Staffie type dog with them, attacked the vehicle in the Springfield Avenue area at around 11.10am on Wednesday.

After forcing the diver out of the van, one man drove off in it in the Falls Road direction while the other made off on foot towards the Springfield Road junction.

The driver suffered injuries to his legs and has been taken to hospital for treatment.

His injuries were not life threatening.

The van was believed to have been driven to the Kilmore Close area of west Belfast where its contents were transferred to another vehicle.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area between 12 and 12.30pm on Wednesday to contact them.
