A man armed with a gun threatened the occupants of a house in West Belfast.
Police are appealing for information following a report of the threats made to the occupants of a house in the Slieveban Drive area of the city.
The PSNI said they received a report on Saturday afternoon, July 31, just before 2.40pm, that a man, having banged on the front door of the property, threatened the occupants with a gun.
A PSNI spokeswoman said: “When the female occupant screamed, the suspect made off, initially on foot heading onto Slievegallion Drive. It’s believed he subsequently got into a vehicle parked in the Dart Hill area.
“He is described as being aged in his early thirties, over six foot in height, and with dark hair.
“We are working to establish a motive for this incident, which has left the male and female occupants shaken.
“I am asking anyone with information to contact us on 101, quoting reference number 1069 of 31/07/21.”
