POLICE are appealing for information after four men reportedly broke into a Hoyland home carrying weapons last week.

On Tuesday, September 21, police were called to reports of aggravated burglary at about 9.40pm.

It’s reported that four men carrying weapons forced their way into the victim’s property on Fitzwilliam Street.

A police spokesperson told the Chronicle: “When they were challenged by one of the victims, they fled the property.

“Nothing is believed to have been taken.

“Anyone with information which could assist with our enquiries, who has CCTV footage which captured the incident or who was in the area at the time and saw or heard anything suspicious, is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 843 of September 21.

“Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.”
