Burglars raided ‘wrong’ address

The PSNI are appealing for information after a burglary in north Belfast — in which they think the burglars got the wrong address, but stole from the person anyway.

A police spokesperson said: “At approximately 6.10pm, three masked men, armed with a handgun, entered a house in Brookvale Avenue demanding money.”

The PSNI have stated that at this stage they believe the perpetrators got the wrong address and they left shortly after, taking with them a laptop, a digital camera and a mobile phone.

“The three men made off by the Waterworks area and no one was injured in the incident,” added the spokesperson.

They have described one of the men as being of approximately 30 years old, of heavy build, and approximately 5'6" in height.

He is said to have had ginger hair and was wearing blue jeans and a green hooded top.

Another of the men is described as being of approximately 45 years old, with black hair going grey. He was wearing a denim jacket and blue jeans.
