Two males aged 18 and 19 have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and a number of other offences after a man was tied up and robbed at his home in West Belfast.

The 20-year-old victim was threatened with a knife during the incident in the Cloona Manor area, which was reported to police at around 2:20am on Sunday, September 18.
