Police probe after 'man assaulted in house' in Belfast

Police are investigating an alleged assault on a 19-year-old man inside a house in north Belfast.

Officers received a report that a number of masked men entered the property in Kinnaird Street at about 11.25pm on Saturday and attacked the man.

One of the assailants was reportedly armed with a firearm, police said.

The alleged victim sustained a cut to his neck and bruising to his body. A woman, in her 40s, who was in the property at the time, was not injured.

Police said a number of other men, wearing hooded tops and covering their faces, waited outside the house while the assault was taking place.

Officers have appealed for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
