Newry house robbery foiled by child

Newry City Sinn Féin Councillor Valerie Harte has urged people in the local community to be vigilant after details of an attempted robbery in the Old Warrenpoint area of Newry City were made public.

The local Councillor explained, “I have been informed by the Ballnacraig Community Association about an incident in the vicinity of the Old Warrenpoint Road, Newry.



“There was an attempted robbery in Flagstaff Court. In the early hours of Thursday morning, the occupants of the house were asleep in their beds but their eldest child was woken by the noise and went to see what it was.

“The thieves, after being disturbed by him, fled,” she revealed.

When the family went to see what had happened, they discovered that the front door of the property had been removed from its hinges.



The Sinn Féin representative continued, “This no doubt has been a very traumatic experience for this family and hopefully they will in time recover from it.

“Any right minded person would view this as a totally disgusting act and it won’t be tolerated within our communities.

“I would urge residents of the area to be vigilant and check on elderly and vulnerable neighbours.

She added, “This is a very worrying incident and if you notice any suspicious activity in your area please contact the relevant authorities.”
