A group of men wielding a crowbar and a knife assaulted their victim in his Newry home before giving chase in two cars as he made his escape.

Detectives are appealing for information following the report of the aggravated burglary in the Parkview Close area of the city on Monday evening, July 3.

Detective Sergeant Johnston said: “Shortly before 8:30pm, it was reported to police that a number of males entered a property in the area and a man in his 30s who was inside the premises, was assaulted during the incident.
