Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has urged anyone with information in relation to an aggravated burglary at the home of an elderly man in the Maple Road area of Coshquin on Friday night to bring it forward to the PSNI.
He said “This must have been a very frightening experience for this man.
The reports that he was threatened with a screwdriver and the intruders demanded his money and ripped out the phone line is something no one should ever have to encounter in their lifetime.
It’s vitally important that those responsible are apprehended as soon as possible before this happens to anyone else. I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI.
