“The woman was not injured, however, she has been left shaken by the incident. Nothing is believed to have been taken, however, damage was caused to a window at the property.

“I want to appeal to anyone who was in the Grove Hill area last night, around 7:40pm and saw any suspicious activity, or who has information which may assist our investigation to call us on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference 1275 of 16/02/19.”
