Two men have been injured during an aggravated burglary in Ballymoney, County Antrim.

Around 11:25pm on Sunday 7 May police received a report that the windows and front door of a house in Carnany Drive had been smashed by four masked men. 

The gang assaulted two men, both in their 30s, using a crow bar and a sledge hammer. One of the victims was attacked in an alleyway beside the house and then dragged to a grassed area and further assaulted. He sustained suspected fractures to his arms, legs and ankles along with a number of puncture wounds. The other man suffered a laceration to the top of his head. 

Police say they'd like to hear from anyone with any information that could assist their investigation. Detectives can be contacted by calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference '1501 of 07/05/17'.
