Thieves forced their way into the house after 9.40pm last night.

TWO WOMEN IN their 90s and a man aged in his 80s were locked in the bedroom of a house last night as thieves ransacked the building.

Three men forced their way into the house, in Kilcoo, Co Down, between 9.40pm and 10.40pm last night, the PSNI said in a statement.

The three were locked in a downstairs bedroom as the raiders went through the house, looking for valuables.

It’s not yet known if anything has been stolen.

The elderly occupants of the house weren’t injured, but have been left shaken by their ordeal.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the PSNI.
