A PENSIONER was left "very shaken up" following a burglary in west Belfast on Saturday evening.
Four men, one of whom was wearing a mask, entered a house in the Oranmore Street area between 6.45pm and 7.05pm and pushed the occupant onto the sofa.
They made off on foot after searching the house.
The PSNI said the victim was not injured "during this terrifying ordeal but has understandably been left very shaken up".
“We believe they were wearing gloves and one of the men was masked."
Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan said it was a "disgusting incident" .
“Elderly people, like everyone, should feel safe and secure in their homes," he said. “I would urge anyone with any information on this crime to bring it forward to the police.”
Police can be contacted on 101 quoting reference number 1484 22/01/22.
