Father and son held hostage in Newtownabbey burglary

A father and son were held hostage during a burglary of their Newtownabbey home.

Four masked men forced their way into the Carnreagh Bend home at around 10.30pm on Wednesday.

They made a 76-year-old man and his 35-year-old son sit in the living room before searching through the home and making off with cash.

No one was injured and it's thought the four men made off in a dark-coloured Volkswagen Passat car.

Police have made an appeal for information.
