Three generations of women from the same family have been threatened during an armed robbery at a house in Lagmore.

Three masked men, two armed with handguns, forced their way into the property in Glenfearna Gardens in the Lagmore estate at 10.45pmT on Friday April 15. They threatened the women, aged 81, 49, and 25, and tied up the 49-year-old during the robbery. The gang left in a small silver vehicle with a substantial sum of cash.

Detective Constable Fiona Mills said: “This was a despicable act perpetrated against three generations of the one family. All of these women have been left understandably extremely shaken and upset by the ordeal.”

Police have appealed for anyone with information about the incident to contact them on the non-emergency number 101. Information can be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
