Man is beaten with baseball bats in north Belfast

A 22-year-old man has been taken to hospital after being beaten by a masked gang armed with baseball bats in north Belfast.

At about 22:00 BST on Sunday, four masked men, armed with baseball bats, forced their way into a house in the St Vincent Street area, off the Shore Road, by breaking the door lock.

They assaulted the victim in front of his partner and two children.

He was later treated for his injuries.
