Gun is held to taxi driver's head


A gun was held to the back of the driver's head

A taxi driver has been threatened at gunpoint in north Belfast.

It is believed the weapon jammed when one of four men who were passengers in the taxi placed a gun to the back of the driver's head.

He had picked them up a short time earlier, at about 2230 GMT on Saturday, in the Beldoc area of the Crumlin Road and had driven them to Ligoniel.

A struggle then broke out and the driver managed to run from the car. The men then fled from the scene.

It is thought they ran down an alleyway at the side of the nearby McKenna's pub.

Police have appealed for anyone with information concerning the incident to contact them.
