A woman was held at gunpoint in a burglary at a house in Holywood.

Police said it would have been a terrifying experience.

It happened just before midnight on Clarehill Lane on Thursday.

Detective Sergeant Westbury said: "It’s believed the man entered the property, and pointed a firearm at the female occupant.  He subsequently made off with a sum of money, possibly on foot.

"The suspect is described as being aged in his early 20s, wearing a cap, a black puffer-type jacket and grey bottoms.

"While the woman wasn’t physically injured, this would have been a terrifying experience.

"We are appealing to anyone with information that might assist our investigation to get in touch on 101, quoting reference number 2100 of 17/10/19."
