A WOMAN has been left shaken after she was forced to the ground during a robbery at her home in west Belfast.

Sometimes between 8.15pm and 8.30pm yesterday, three men armed with weapons forced their way into a property at Larkspur Rise in the Suffolk Road area.

The men forced the woman to the ground and demanded money from her, before fleeing.

Police said what had happened was a "frightening ordeal for the victim in her home, somewhere she rightly deserves to feel safe".

A PSNI spokesman said enquiries into the incident "underway".

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
