A man has been injured jumping from a window to escape armed intruders who assaulted three other people during a break-in in Newtownards.

The injured man had to be taken to hospital following the incident in the Old Market Square area at about 1.45am on Sunday.

Two hooded men carrying a hammer broke into the property and assaulted three occupants – two men and one woman – before the fourth person jumped from the first-floor window.

Detectives are investigating and are asking anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area to contact them on 101.
