A 79-year-old woman was injured when a gang ransacked her home in Castlereagh at around 10.25pm on Wednesday.
The pensioner answered the door of her Mayfair Avenue home to be confronted by a group of males.
They forced their way into the house and held her down before one of the men moved her into another room. A 20-year-old man and 19-year-old woman who were in the house at the time were held in the same room while the men searched the house.
They eventually made off with a sum of money.
The 79-year-old sustained an injury to her elbow and all three victims were badly shaken by the incident.
Police have appealed for information on 0845 600 8000.
