A woman has suffered a suspected broken arm after confronting robbers at her home in west Belfast.

Shortly before 05:30 BST on Saturday two men entered the house at Ladybrook Crescent and threatened the female occupants.

They escaped with a TV and a Renault Clio belonging to one of the women. The car was later found burnt out in the Lenadoon area.

Two men aged 20 and 21 have been arrested.

In a separate incident, burglars ransacked a shop in Durham Street in west Belfast and stole a large quantity of cigarettes and money from the till.

They also broke a staff toilet flooding the store. It happened shortly before 08:00 BST on Saturday.

Also in west Belfast a 31-year-old old man was arrested after a householder called police at about 07:50 BST to say an intruder was in their house at Norfolk Parade.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old man was also arrested following a burglary at commercial premises in the the Antrim Road area of north Belfast at about 02:25am.

The burglar was disturbed by a member of staff and left empty-handed.
