Police are appealing for information after it was reported that two female mini-marathon runners were approached by a man with a knife at the weekend.
The incident is believed to have taken place in the Ormeau Road/Galwally Park area of Belfast on Sunday, when the city’s first mini-marathon was held.
Police are keen to speak to the two women who, after being approached by a male holding a knife, went to a nearby house and asked the householder to call the police and report the incident.
Police would ask that these two females contact them at Lisburn Road on 0845 600 8000.
A 47-year-old man has been arrested and police inquiries are continuing.
