The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have arrested a 23 year old man in Belfast today following an attempted carjacking.

The incident occurred in the College Square North area of Belfast at about 8am this morning, according to the PSNI press office.

The accused attempted to steal a parked car belonging to two women who were paying their parking nearby, but the victims were unwilling to let their car get stolen.

The two women attempted to stop the man, and when a passing police patrol witnessed the struggle they intervened to detain the suspect.

The two officers were assaulted during the course of the arrest, but managed to apprehend the suspect and only obtained minor injuries. The two women were shocked, but unharmed.

The man remains in custody.
