A gang of men from the Republic is believed to be responsible for an attack on a 97-year-old man in his west Belfast home over the weekend.
The victim, John Dunne, suffered a cut to his arm when he confronted four men who broke in and ransacked his home in Andersonstown Park South on Saturday afternoon.
He subsequently suffered a heart attack in hospital.
Mr Dunne's son says the gang responsibility all had strong southern accents.
