November 19, 2018

Detectives are appealing for information following a burglary at the home of an elderly man in the Millvale Park area of Bessbrook on Saturday evening last (17th November).

At around 7.50pm two men forced entry to the property and confronted the occupant, a man in his eighties. The pair left the premises a short time later empty-handed. Although not physically injured, the elderly man has been left badly shaken by the incident.

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. The men made off in a dark hatchback-type vehicle, similarly sized to an Audi A3 or Volkswagen Golf. 

Police are appealing to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 1203 of 16/11/18.
