Pensioner threatened with screwdriver during burglary


Two elderly men were the victims of a burglary during which one was threatened with a screwdriver near Lurgan on Thursday night.

One of the men, aged in his 80s, returned to his home in Dollingstown with a male relative, aged in his 70s, at around 9.45pm to find three males in the house.

During what police described as “an altercation” the younger man was threatened with the screwdriver.

Neither of the victims were injured.

The three men made off in a black car and it is understood nothing was stolen.

One of them is described as being approximately six foot tall with a round face. The other two men are described as being smaller, slimmer and both aged in their 20s.

Police have appealed for information.
