A man has been left badly shaken following an aggravated burglary in north Belfast.
Three masked men, armed with hammers, disconnected the electricity supply to a house in Mill Valley North at about 10.40pm on Thursday.
Police say the gang then forced their way inside the house and pushed the victim to the ground, before taking a sum of money and the keys to the occupant’s blue Honda Civic car.
Detective Sergeant Sam McCallum said: “The men left the scene in the car which was located on fire a short time later at Ardoyne Place.
“The occupant sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident, but was left badly shaken.”
Anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area, or has further information has been asked to contact police.
