THE PSNI IN Newry are looking for three men after an elderly disabled man was beaten, stabbed and robbed in his home.

The attack took place in the Clogharevan Park area of Newry in the early hours of this morning.

Detective Inspector Harry Colgan said:

At approximately 2.40am police received a report that three men had broken into a house and entered a bedroom where the elderly, disabled male occupant of the house was in bed. They then proceeded to assault him with a sharp implement. He received several wounds to his body as a result of this assault.

“He has been taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries.

“It is believed that a sum of money was stolen.”

Colgan appealed to the public for help in finding those responsible.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have noticed any suspicious activity in the area or who has any information to contact detectives at Newry on the non-emergency number 101.

“Or, 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.”
