Two women have been assaulted and tied up at a commercial premesis in West Belfast.

Three men dressed as postmen and armed with a gun entered an office in The Cutts area of Dunmurry this afternoon.

Both victims were left badly shaken with minor injuries.

Detective Sergeant Melanie McGrory said: “Three men, dressed as postmen and one armed with a suspected firearm, entered the office premises at around 1pm.

"One of the suspects was described as being around 6’ tall, of slim build, aged in his 30’s with piercing green eyes and pale skin.
