A 19-year-old man was taken to hospital in a stable condition at around 1.20am on Saturday after he was stabbed in the back in the Mountainhill Road area of Ligoniel.

Police said two men, believed to have been involved in the incident, made off from the area in a silver Clio car towards the Antrim Road area, and investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, in the Montrose Street area of east Belfast, a man aged 21 has been injured with a knife.

He required hospital treatment but police said his injuries are not believed to be life threatening. A 24-year-old man was arrested but later released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Officers have asked anyone with information on these incidents to come forward.
