Raiders lock pensioners in bedroom


Three elderly people were left shaken after being locked in a bedroom by burglars, police have said.

The two women aged in their 90s and a man in his 80s were forced into the downstairs room of their house in the Hilltown Road area of Kilcoo in Co Down last night during the break-in.

Police said three men made their way into the house sometime between 9.40pm and 10.40pm and ransacked it.

The elderly occupants were not injured in the burglary but officers said they were left shaken by the ordeal.

It is not known if anything was stolen.
