Woman threatened in her home by men brandishing knives

This happened in Coleraine at around 5.30pm yesterday evening.

A WOMAN IN Northern Ireland has endured an ordeal after two men broke into her home.

This happened shortly after 5.30pm yesterday afternoon when the men, thought to be aged in their twenties, entered the house.

Confronting the woman, they demanded money and threatened the woman with a knife.
