The victim was in his car in Ligoniel Road in the north of the city when he was targeted at about 5pm on Thursday.

A man jumped into the passenger seat and forced the driver to go to Elmfield Street, where he was forced out of the vehicle by two other men.

The car, a silver-coloured Ford Mondeo, was found burned out in Jamaica Street at about 9.30pm.

A PSNI spokesman has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
