An 18-year-old woman has been charged with disorderly behaviour in connection with an incident in north Belfast on Sunday.

A 57-year-old man, who was also arrested by police investigating a racist attack, has been released on bail pending a file to the PPS.

Two Pakistani men, aged 24 and 38, were injured when they were assaulted at their house at Parkmount Street on Sunday afternoon.

One was treated in hospital.

The house the men live in was targeted hours earlier when a bottle was thrown through the living room window.

The 18-year-old woman is due to appear in Belfast Magistrates Court on 27 June.
