Police probing Newtownabbey burglaries link

Detectives in Newtownabbey are appealing for information following a number of incidents.

Around 7.20am on Sunday, November 21, a man entered a house in the King's Crescent area, threatened the 24 year old occupant with a knife and made off with cash in his silver Saab car.

It was found abandoned a short time later in the Shore Crescent area. It had damage to the front so may have been involved in a collision after being stolen.

It is believed a silver Peugeot car, seen close to the scene, may also have been involved. It was found abandoned on the Shore Road around 8am on Sunday.

The male driving the Peugeot car is described as being 6ft tall, of slim to medium build with fair hair and was wearing an orange coloured shellsuit type top and light coloured jeans.

The second male, who was seen with the Saab car, is described as being 5ft 7in to 8in tall, of slim build with short black hair and wearing a navy coloured jacket.

Detectives are also investigating a possible link between a burglary in the Grays Park Avenue area of Belfast which occured overnight between Saturday and Sunday. Entry was gained to a house and a grey Toyota Yaris car taken.

Items from both burglaries were recovered in the Donegall Park Avenue area shortly before 9am on Sunday.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has information in relation to any of these incidents. They can be contacted on 0845 600 8000 or information about crime can be passed anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
