“Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses following a report of an aggravated burglary in Carrickfergus on Tuesday evening, 5th March.

A police spokesperson said: “Police received a report shortly after 8pm that two masked men, who were dressed all in black and armed with a knife and pistol-type gun, entered a property in the Macroom Gardens area of the town.

“The suspects demanded money and threatened a man, aged in his 40s, who was inside the property at the time.

“One of the masked men then punched the occupant on his lip and both suspects fled the scene on foot, possibly in the direction of Love Lane.

“Our investigation is now underway to establish what happened, who was involved and a motive.

“We are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time, and saw anything suspicious to call police on 101, quoting reference number 1753 05/03/24. We are also keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of Prince Andrew Way between 7.45pm and 8.20pm who may have dash-cam footage.”
