Muggers strike man on head with bottle in south Belfast

Detectives in south Belfast are appealing for information after a man was hit on the head with a bottle.

The assault happened in the Ormeau Road area on Monday when the 24-year-old was walking close to the junction with the Stranmillis embankment shortly before 4pm.

The victim was approached by two unknown males who demanded his mobile.

 A PSNI spokesman said: “The man refused and one struck him on the head with a bottle that smashed. Both males made off empty-handed in the direction of the Holylands. The male did not receive medical treatment for his injury.”

 Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information is asked to contact police at Musgrave on 0845 600 8000.
