A man has been left very badly shaken after he woke up to an intruder holding a knife to his throat in his house in south Belfast.
It happened at around 4am this morning in the Magdala Street area of the city.
The man stole cash and the victim's iPhone before leaving.
A spokesperson for the PSNI said: "Detective Sergeant Patrick Conlan would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone who has information that could help police with their enquiries to contact detectives at Musgrave PSNI Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 676 01/09/18.
"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime."
