Man attacked by gang wielding hammer and crowbar in north Belfast

A man is being treated in hospital after he was attacked at his Belfast home by a gang of armed men.

The attack happened around 9.30pm on Sunday night when two men - armed with a crowbar and a hammer - forced their way into a house in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast.

The men then assaulted the victim and ransacked his home, before making off with a samurai sword, knife and a mobile phone.

They then fled in the direction of Hesketh Road.

The victim was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.
