A man in his late teens has been left badly shaken after being assaulted by two men armed with a hammer, during an aggravated burglary in Coleraine.

It comes after the pair forced their way into a house in the Westbrook Court area at around 7.15pm last night.

It is believed that one man was wearing a hi-vis style jacket.

Police say they also made an attempt to tie up the victim, who was inside the house at the time, with cable ties.

He wasn't seriously injured during the incident, however a sum of money was taken.

Detective Sergeant Wallace said, “Enquiries are continuing and we are appealing for information if anyone saw anything suspicious in the area at the time of the incident to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 1252 21/1/19.

"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.”
