Police are investigating a burglary at the home of a man in his 70s at Chestnut Grove, Newry.

At approximately 8:20pm on Monday 4th October 2021, the resident hears a noise upstairs in his home.

He then makes his way upstairs where he finds a male intruder in one of the rooms.

The resident then challenges the intruder and tries to push him out of his home. The male intruder then pushed the victim into the bathroom and demanded money before making off with his wallet.
