Couple in their 80s threatened during robbery

A couple in their 80s have been threatened by an armed man during an aggravated burglary at their home.

They were threatened at their house in the Mallusk Road area of Newtownabbey on Friday night.

At around 10pm a man armed with a crowbar forced his way into the property.

The male pensioner then resisted the would-be robber and chased him out of the house empty handed.

The intruder - who was dressed in black clothing - is believed to have made off in a red Rover car towards Templepatrick.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
