Two women have been assaulted and tied up at a flat in south Belfast.

Three masked men forced their way into the property on Ashley Avenue at around 11.30pm on Wednesday.

They attacked the women - aged 38 and 40 - and used a stun gun on one of them, before tying both up.

The men then ransacked the flat and fled with a sum of cash.

Police have appealed for any witnesses or anyone with information on what happened to get in touch via the number 101.
