We’re appealing for witnesses after a break-in at a house in Pear Tree Crescent.
On Saturday, April 7 between 9pm and 9.40pm four burglars forced open the rear door to a home, whilst the owners were asleep inside.
The burglars, all men, wore dark-coloured clothing and had their faces covered.
One of the burglars carried a sharp item, believed to be a screwdriver, and entered a bedroom awaking a 67-year-old man.
The other three burglars awoke a 67-year-old woman, who tried to shout for help. The burglars pinned her down to the bed repeatedly and put their hands over her mouth.
The burglars stole jewellery, documents and a quantity of cash. It is believed they travelled to the house in a dark-coloured car.
Anyone who noticed anything suspicious around the area at this time, or who saw a dark-coloured car nearby should contact DC Lucy Iriwn on 101, quoting reference number 18000156773.
