Published 24/08/2015

A 19-year-old woman has been threatened at knife point and held in her bedroom while a thief raided her south Belfast home.

It happened at a flat in the Ireton Road area on Friday August 21.

At approximately 2.45pm, a man entered the bedroom of one of the residents, a 19-year-old woman.

It is believed that he was armed with a knife and he threatened the woman and told her to stay in the room before he stole a laptop.

The man is described as having a Belfast accent, being about 5ft 7inches tall, with short brown hair. He was wearing a blue and white checked shirt, dark trousers and a bright pink rucksack type bag.

Detective Constable Anita Cummings said: “There were two other burglaries in the area that day. A tablet and camera was stolen from premises in the India Street area, while a games console and games were taken from a house in the Ireton Street area. A knife was left behind at this address.

“I would ask anyone with any information about any of these incidents to contact detectives in Musgrave Police Station on the non-emergency number 101.

"Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
