Belfast man shaken after knife is held to his throat

By Aoife Moore

A south Belfast man woke up in the early hours of Saturday to find an intruder holding a knife to his throat during a burglary.

The intruder took money and the man's iPhone and then left the house, in the Magdala Street area of the city.

The victim was not injured but police say he was left badly shaken.

Detective Sergeant Patrick Conlan has appealed for anyone who saw the male intruder in the area at around 4am.

He said: "I would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone who has information that could help police with their inquiries to contact detectives at Musgrave PSNI station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 676 of September 1."

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
