Detectives are appealing for information after two men broke into a house in Maguiresbridge where they confronted a woman and demanded money from her.

It was reported that the burglary took place at a house at Gardiners Cross Road in Maguiresbridge in the early hours of Sunday, September 8.

A spokesman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) stated: "The female occupant of the house was disturbed from her sleep by breaking glass at around 1.30am and was then confronted in her hall by two males who demanded she hand over money. A small sum of money and a bank card were taken by the men who then left the house."

He added: "Both men were described as being aged around 30 and both wore dark clothing."

Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: “This was a terrifying ordeal and the occupant, a woman aged in her 60’s, has been left traumatised. Our enquiries are ongoing and I would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the Gardiners Cross Road area to contact detectives at Omagh on 101 quoting reference number 207 08/09/19. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100 per cent anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
