Detectives in Derry are appealing for information following the report of an aggravated burglary at a property in Yeats Court of Ballymagroarty on Thursday 20th September. Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: “The report stated that just before 9.50pm on Thursday evening, four masked men, one armed with a suspected firearm, entered a flat in the area and forced the two occupants into the kitchen. "The armed man stayed with the occupants in the kitchen whilst the other three smashed furniture and windows in the flat. "There were no reported injuries as a result of the incident, however, the occupants were left badly shaken.” “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Yeats Court on Thursday evening and who may have noticed any suspicious activity or anyone with any information which could assist us with our enquiries to contact detectives at Strand Road on 101 quoting reference number 1326 20/09/18. "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.”
