DETECTIVES investigating the report of an aggravated burglary in west Belfast yesterday evening are appealing for information and witnesses.
Detective Sergeant Arnott said: “It was reported that sometime between 8:15pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday, March 18, three males forced entry to a property in the Larkspur Rise area.
“The men, who were reported to be armed with weapons, forced the woman to the ground and demanded money from her, before fleeing.
“This was a frightening ordeal for the victim in her home, somewhere she rightly deserves to feel safe.
“Enquiries are underway, and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area between these times and saw any suspicious activity, or who has information about this incident which could assist with our investigation to contact detectives at Musgrave on 101 quoting reference number 1779 of 18/03/20.”
Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
