Five masked men broke into a home and threatened the occupants.

Police say the gang got into the house in Rosebery Street at about 4.45pm yesterday and made threats before searching through the property.

They left empty-handed in a silver-coloured car that had been parked in Bathurst Road and drove off in the direction of County Road.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the raid to contact them on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

No one was injured in the incident.
