The elderly man answered the door when it is believed that another unknown man smashed a window in the property and gained entry. Along with the two men, a third man entered with his face covered.

They threatened the 71-year-old and asked him for money. One of the men wearing a blue hooded jacket is reported to have threatened the victim with a gun. Police say the offenders left the property after taking a quantity of cash.

The elderly man suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident.
