Craigavon: Women are held during house raid ordeal

Two masked men who broke into a house in Craigavon held a mother and daughter in a room while their accomplices raided the home.

The two women - one in her 40s and the other a teenager - were in a house in the Lakelands area on Monday at around 8.45pm when the masked and gloved men entered and forced them to stay in the living room with them.

More people are then believed to have entered and went through the rest of the house for about 10 or 15 minutes.

They took money and jewellery before making off on foot by the back of the house. The women were not injured in the incident but were left badly shaken.
