POLICE are appealing for information following the report of an aggravated burglary at the home of an older person in the Clonelly Avenue area of west Belfast this afternoon.
Detective Sergeant O’Flaherty said: “At around 1.00 pm we received a report that a short time earlier, the occupant had disturbed an unknown male inside his property.
“He was reported to have been armed with a screwdriver and threatened the victim before making off from the property with a sum of money, in a grey coloured Citroen car.
“We are appealing to anyone who was in the area around that time and who noticed any suspicious activity to get in touch. Please contact detectives at Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 780 of 25/02/20.
