The 21 year old female and 33 year old male were arrested in the Newtownabbey area last night on suspicion of aggravated burglary and remain in police custody at this time.


A 25 year old male sustained lacerations to his head and a suspected fractured wrist when he was assaulted by two males and a female who forced their way into his flat around 7.30pm on Friday evening. 


It is believed the suspects made off in a red coloured Ford Focus car following the incident.

Detective Sergeant Coulter continues to appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information that can assist with the investigation to contact Detectives in Antrim on 101 quoting reference 1114 11/01/19. Detectives are particularly keen to speak with anyone who observed a red coloured Ford Focus car in the Burneys Mews area on Friday evening.  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
