A pensioner was left shaken after two men conned their way into his home and stole money.
The burglary happened in the Hillview Park area of Newtownabbey at approximately 7pm on Friday.
The PSNI said two men called at the home of the victim, who is aged in his 70s, and entered the house, claiming they knew him.
“They stole a sum of money from the house before leaving,” a spokeswoman said. “The occupier was left very badly shaken.”
Local UUP MLA Danny Kinahan said: “I am shocked to learn of this robbery and hope that anyone with information will make contact with the PSNI or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 as soon as possible.
“It is outrageous that anyone in our community should be subjected to such an ordeal.”
Meanwhile, a man who escaped injury when his car was hijacked in west Belfast was also described by police as “badly shaken” after the incident in the St James’s Parade area at about 7.40pm on Saturday.
The victim was ordered out of his car by two unknown men, who had their faces covered.
The PSNI said the pair fled in the car, a blue Citroen, which was found burnt out a short time later on the Whiterock Road.
