A 39-year-old man has been charged with aggravated burglary with intent to steal after a man and a woman were attacked in their north Belfast home.

The incident took place at a house on the Ligoniel Road on Friday night.

It was reported that around 8.25pm, two masked men, one of whom was reported to have been carrying a suspected firearm, entered a house in the area and assaulted the man and woman inside.

They were not left seriously injured.

The culprits then fled along the Ligoniel Road in the direction of Thornberry.

The 39-year-old suspect was arrested a short time later on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court on Monday February 18.
