A teenager was thrown from his bed after waking to find a man with a knife in his bedroom.

The 18-year-old man was attacked shortly after midnight at his home in the Crumlin Road area of north Belfast.

The burglar threatened the young man before dragging and throwing him from the bed. He then assaulted him before ransacking a number of rooms.

He stole a laptop and mobile phone before leaving the house.

The suspect is described as around 5ft 7ins tall, of heavy build with short, shaved hair. He was wearing a light grey T-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

Police have appealed to anyone with information about the incident to contact them.
