Warrenpoint couple locked in bathroom during armed robbery

A couple have been taken to hospital for treatment after an armed robbery at their home in Warrenpoint, County Down.

Four men, two, who were believed to be carrying guns, entered the property on the Rostrevor Road around 22:00 GMT on Sunday.

They threatened the couple before locking them in a bathroom. The gang left with a sum of money.

The couple raised the alarm on Monday morning when a visitor called at their home.

Although they were not injured, police said they had been left badly shaken by the incident.
