A gang of masked men armed with iron bars have assaulted a man in his home in Derry.

The attack took place  around 10:40pm at a property in Creggan Heights  on Tuesday,  April 9.

The victim sustained a facial injury.

A PSNI spokesman said: "The masked intruders then fled on foot in the direction of Rinmore Drive.

"The victim, aged in his thirties, made his way to hospital for treatment.

"Two women and a second male in the house at the time of the incident were not injured, however, this must have been a frightening ordeal for the victim and the occupants of the house.

"Our enquiries are ongoing, and I want to appeal to anyone who was in the Creggan Heights area prior to, or around the time the incident was reported to us and saw a number of males in the area acting suspiciously, or anyone who has information which may assist our investigation to call detectives at Strand Road on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1482 of 09/04/19."
