A front window of the property in the Foxglove Street area was smashed on Friday night shortly before 11pm.

No one was at home at the time of the incident, which police are treating as a hate crime.

A 15-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were arrested in the east of the city on Saturday afternoon on suspicion of criminal damage and possession of an offensive weapon.

They are currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them at Musgrave Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, option 2 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
