15 Oct 2018
Police have arrested two males following a report of an attempted burglary. At around 10:30am on Sunday morning in the Ballymagroarty area of the city, two males were disturbed by a woman in her 60s, as they attempted to break into her home. The males made off on foot and were detained a short distance away by police. Both men remain in custody and detectives from CID and the Reducing Offending Unit are investigating a possible link between this incident and other similar reports in the area. "Police would like to thank the members of the public who called this in," a police spokesperson said. If you think you saw anything or know anything that could help our investigation, please call us on 101 quoting reference number 543 of 14/10/18 or, if you would prefer to provide information without giving their details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111
