Elderly woman attacked by robbers
Burglary (generic)
An 80-year-old woman has been attacked during a robbery at her County Armagh home, police have said.

Three young men forced their way into her home on Tassagh Road, two miles from Keady, at about 1600 BST on Thursday.

They assaulted her and ransacked the house before fleeing with some cash.

The woman sustained minor injuries and was left very shaken by her ordeal. Her assailants are thought to have been aged in their late teens or early 20s.

Police are keen to speak with anyone who may have witnessed a large black car parked on the Tassagh Road at about the time of the robbery.
