A woman at home on her own was alerted to a suspected burglar by her barking dogs late last night (Monday).
Sylvia O’Hare, who lives on the Armagh to Tandragee Road just outside Newry, told Armagh I that her dogs had started barking, which is why she looked out the window.
“The dogs were going nuts so I looked out the back and there he was, some man with his hood up, stood at mine and the neighbour’s fence,” she said.
“He was wearing a blue jacket and the dogs were just going mad at him. My neighbour went out a few minutes later when the man was around the front of the house; it was then he ran off.”
Sylvia took to Facebook to make others vigilant.
This incident, albeit not a burglary, is the latest on a long list of disturbances in the south Armagh and Newry areas.
If you see or hear anything suspicious please call police on the non-emergency number 101.
