Detectives are appealing for information following a report of a burglary at a house in Newry on Monday evening, 4 October.

Detective Sergeant McCarragher said: “It was reported at around 8.55pm that a male had gained entry to a property in the Chestnut Grove area of the city, and demanded money from the occupant, who is in his 70s.

“A physical altercation ensued, before the intruder managed to take the householder’s wallet – which contained cash and bank cards – and leave the scene. 

“He has been described as being approximately 5’4 to 5’5 in height, of a frail build, and clean shaven, and was wearing dark clothing and possibly a cap.

“Fortunately, the resident was not injured, but has understandably been left very shaken by the incident. 

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time, and who may have witnessed any suspicious activity, to get in touch with detectives in Ardmore on 101, quoting reference number 2130 of 04/10/21.”
