POLICE IN CO Antrim are investigating an aggravated burglary that happened in the village of Carnlough on Wednesday of this week.

At around midday, two men confronted a homeowner in the hallway of a house in Croft Avenue, punching the 56-year-old in the face and binding his hands with cable ties.

A 17-year-old girl who was in another room in the house at the time was also tied up.

The intruders demanded money from the homeowner before ransacking the property.

They then made off on foot down an alleyway in the direction of Croft Grove towards Croft Road.

Both intruders are believed to be in their 40s.

One is believed to have ginger hair and was wearing a checked shirt. The other is described as having a receding hairline.

Detectives are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen the men in the area or who may have information. They can be contacted by calling the PSNI on ’101′.
