A woman in Co Fermanagh suffered a "terrifying ordeal" after being assaulted by a man in her bedroom.

Police are investigating an aggravated burglary in Derrygonnelly.

They received a report that around 11.05pm on Wednesday June 26 a man entered a property in the Lough Shore Road area.

Once inside the property, the man entered a bedroom, threatened and assaulted a woman before leaving on foot.

The victim sustained minor injuries to her arm and leg. Nothing was reported stolen.

The man is described as being approximately 5’6’’ tall, aged between twenties to forties, of a slight build and spoke with what was described as a local accent.

Detective Constable Sayers said that the woman had been left traumatised by the incident.

“This was an absolutely terrifying ordeal for the victim in her own home, somewhere she rightly deserves to feel safe," he said.

"This has left the victim extremely traumatised and I am appealing to anyone who can help us locate the suspect  to call detectives in Omagh on 101, quoting reference number 2473 26/06/19.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
