Aggravated Burglary in Ballymoney

Detectives in Coleraine are appealing for witnesses following an aggravated burglary in the Donaghbrook Drive area of Ballymoney on Monday 10 April 2017. At approximately 9.40pm, 3 armed and masked men entered a house in the area where a man in his 70s and his wife were inside. The man was struck on the head by one of his assailants. He received medical treatment at hospital and has since been released. The man and the woman were tied to chairs with cable ties before the men fled in an unknown vehicle. A substantial sum of money was taken.
DC Brennan said: “The woman managed to break free and go to a neighbour’s house. There were also reports of shots fired coming from the Ballybrakes area at around this time and I am appealing to anyone who may have heard a sound like shots, to contact us. We are also appealing to anyone that may have witnessed any suspicious activity or vehicles in the area to contact Detectives at Coleraine Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1298 of the 10/04/17. 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.”
