Home intruders point gun at man near Warrenpoint

Three masked intruders threatened to shoot a man before ransacking his home.

The gang entered the house at Ryanstown Road near Warrenpoint in County Down at about 21:00 GMT on Friday.

The 60-year-old was held down on the floor by one of the men who demanded money, while the other two went through his house looking for valuables.

Before making off in his 4x4 vehicle, they tied him up and locked him in a bedroom. His vehicle was later found abandoned on the Upper Burren Road.

The victim was treated in hospital for a minor injury.

Police have appealed for information.
