A man in his 80's has been left badly shaken following a burglary at residential premises in the Millvale Park area of Bessbrook last night, Friday 16 November.

Police are appealing for information from anyone in the area at the time and would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 1203 of 16/11/18.

Detective Sergeant Bell said: “At around 7.50pm, it was reported that two males forced entry to the property and confronted the occupant, a man in his 80s.  They left the premises a short time later empty-handed.  The man was not physically injured, but he was left badly shaken.

“Both males are described as approximately 5’ 8” in height.  One was wearing a light-coloured hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and white trainers and the other had on a black beanie-style hat, a short-sleeved shirt, blue jeans and white trainers.   They made off in a dark hatchback-type vehicle, similarly sized to an Audi A3 or Volkswagen Golf."
