Police appeal after Co Armagh couple robbed and tied up at home

The couple in their 70s were left tied up in their bathroom and were left badly shaken by the ordeal

Police have appealed for information after a Tandragee couple were threatened, robbed and tied up at home.

The aggravated burglary took place at a house in the Portadown Road area of Tandragee on Thursday March 9.

Police in Armagh report that shortly after 9.30pm a group of men, one armed with a poker, forced their way into the house and threatened the couple.

A sum of cash was taken and the couple were tied up and locked in the bathroom. Both the man and woman suffered minor cuts to their wrists and were left badly shaken by their ordeal.

Inspector Philip Quinn commented: “The intruders spoke with southern accents and wore black clothes, scarves covering their faces and woollen hats. It is unclear at this time if they left the scene in a vehicle or on foot."

He continued: "I would appeal to anyone who may have any information about the incident, or who witnessed any suspicious activity to contact officers in Armagh on 101 quoting reference number 1221 of the 09/03/17. Or alternatively if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
