A woman has been left "deeply distressed" after a "cowardly" aggravated burglary in Belfast, police have said.

The burglary happening at a house in the Downview Gardens area in the north of the city on Friday evening.

Three masked men forced their way into the property just after 5.15pm and pushed a female occupant to floor and threatened her.
