Detectives are appealing for information following a burglary in the Willowfield Drive area of east Belfast yesterday (Monday 9th May).

Detective Sergeant McVeagh said: “Sometime between 11.00 and 11.30am, the homeowner aged in their 90s was at home alone when an unknown man who is described as wearing paint spattered trousers and a dark mask, knocked on the door then entered the property.

He looked around the house then left, returning a short time later.

It is not believed that anything was taken at this stage but the victim has been left shaken by their ordeal.

I would appeal to anyone who may have seen the man in the area or who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage that could help identify him, to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 1143 of 09/05/22.

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.

We are keen to hear from witnesses of this incident

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information that will assist the investigation to contact us on the non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
