Co Armagh mother awoken by man standing over bed in early hours of morning

Police are investigating a “petrifying ordeal’ whereby a mother was awoken by a strange man standing over her bed in the early hours of this morning.

Catherine McCracken highlighted her ordeal on social media this morning following the shocking incident in the Drumbeg area of Craigavon.

Police in the area have tonight put out an appeal on social media.

“We’re dealing with a disturbing incident from the early hours of this morning in Drumbeg, Craigavon,” a PSNI spokesperson explained.

Adding: “A mum with kids in bed alongside her was awoken between 2.30am and 2.45am to find a man standing over the end of her bed.

“Nothing was said, or taken, but when challenged by an understandably terrified home owner, he ran off down the stairs and out the front door. We believe he entered through an open upstairs window.

“He is described as a while male skinhead, tall, late 20s, wearing a cream shirt and blue jeans.

“This would be a petrifying ordeal for anyone, but more so for a parent with children to protect.

“If you were in the area last night and saw anyone matching that description in or around the estate, please call us on 101.

“Someone out there must have seen something. There is a mum out there who will no doubt lie awake tonight worrying. Help us keep her safe. Help us find out who is responsible.”

The incident number is 705 of today, 30/03/19.
