Two males attempt to smash into house after occupant fails to answer door

Detectives in Newry are appealing for information following a burglary in Ashton Heights.

Around 7pm on Monday 14 December, the male occupant of a house heard a knock at his door but didn’t answer.

He went upstairs and looked outside before hearing a loud bang.

The back door of the house had been forced open and the sensor light above the back door had been smashed.

Detective Constable Gina Quinn said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who has information that may assist our investigation. We do not believe the house was entered and nothing was taken.
