Published 29/10/2006

A mother and her seven-year-old son were tied up when armed robbers raided

their home, police said today.

A gang of three masked men - two armed with handguns - burst into the house on

Sheetrim Road in Middletown, Co Armagh, at around 8pm last night and used

masking tape to restrain the woman and her son.

A one-year-old girl, who was also in the house, was unharmed. Police said a

small amount of cash was taken.

The victims were left shocked but unhurt by their ordeal.
