The burglary happened in the Glenvale Crescent area

Police in Newry are appealing for information after a report of an aggravated burglary in the Glenvale Crescent area on Tuesday 15th May. At around 8pm, it was reported that a man entered a house in the area. A female in her 70’s and another female in her 50’s were in the property during the incident. It is believed that a struggle occurred and a sum of cash as well as a car, believed to be a navy Audi A5 coupe, were stolen during the incident. The victims are believed to have been badly shaken, but not seriously injured. SDLP MLA for Newry and Armagh Dominic Bradley has condemned the burglary. Mr Bradley was speaking to Newry Times after visiting the victims in their home. He stated, “This was a despicable crime which left a mother and her daughter injured though thankfully not seriously and both are recovering well.” He continued, “It is imperative that those responsible are apprehended and face the courts. I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to report it to the police without delay.” Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Ardmore CID on 0845 600 8000. Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to then anonymously on 0800 555 111.
