DETECTIVES IN NORTH Belfast are appealing for information after two armed, masked men called to a home in the Cranbrook Court area earlier looking for a man who lived in the house.

Just after midday, the two masked men went to a house looking for the male resident who was not in. It is reported that they were armed with a gun.

When they realised that the man was not home, they made off in the direction of Velsheda.

A woman in her 40s, who was in the house at the time, was not injured but but was left in complete shock.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact CID in Tennent Street Police Station on 0845 600 8000. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
