A 24-year-old man was attacked by a number of masked males, one of them using a hammer, as he left Belfast's City Cemetery on Friday afternoon.

As he was leaving the cemetery, his way was blocked by a number of men wearing masks in a white Hyundai car.

Police say that three of the men got out of the car and one of them attacked the man with a hammer.

He was treated in hospital later for injuries to his leg.

Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them at Musgrave Street station on 101.
