The incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday, December 6, around 00.20 am at property on Howley Mill Lane.

Three suspects have forced entry to the property before being disturbed by the female occupant.

The suspects threatened the victims with knives forcing them to sit on the bed whilst searching for items.

Then the suspects made off with mobile phones, jewellery, and keys to the victim’s vehicle.

The victims, a man and woman, were uninjured during the incident but left distressed and shaken.
