A man has been threatened by a gang armed with a knife at a house in south Belfast.

It happened in the Cricklewood Park area on Tuesday November 21.

Detective Inspector Natalie McNally said: “Police received a report at approximately 7.20pm that three masked men had gained entry into the property. One of the men was believed to have been armed with a knife.
