Just before midnight on Tuesday 22 November two men forced their way into a house of Burton Street. While gaining entry the victim was hit in the face with the door.
Once inside the two men threatened the victim before stealing jewellery, laptop, cash and a wallet. The suspects then stole the victim’s Renault Koleos crashing into the letterbox before driving away. Later, about 7am the car was located abandoned on Norma Avenue, Ridgehaven.
The victim, aged 69, received a minor injury to her face and was treated at the scene by Paramedics.
