Police question two men after van torched in north Belfast

DETECTIVES have arrested two men for a number of offences after workmen were threatened and a vehicle was set on fire in north Belfast.

The offences relate to an incident just before 1am on Tuesday, when two men on bicycles approached a work vehicle which had just parked in the area of the Fortwilliam Roundabout.

The men on the bikes spoke to the driver and one man produced a suspected taser, threatening the driver and a passenger.

The driver was able to make off from the scene quickly.

The pair then set fire to another work van which was parked on the roundabout.

No-one was in this van at the time.

The two men were arrested a while later and are currently assisting police with their inquiries.

A 24-year-old is being held on suspicion of arson, common assault, possession of an offensive weapon and going equipped for theft.

A 19-year-old man was detained on suspicion of arson and possession of a prohibited article.
