Aggravated Burglary outside Larne | Man in his 60’s assaulted with baseball bat

Detectives are investigating the report of an aggravated burglary in Glynn, outside Larne last night (Wednesday, 24th June).

A report was made to police at around 11:30pm that approximately 10 minutes earlier two masked males forced their way into a property in Glenvale Park and assaulted a man, aged in his sixties, with a baseball bat.

The victim, who sustained injuries to his head, was able to get the men out of the property. However, once outside it was reported they attacked his vehicle, using the bat, before fleeing.

Detective Sergeant Lenaghan said: "This was a brutal assault.

"Enquiries are ongoing to establish what occurred, and a motive for the attack.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area last night and saw what occurred, or has information which may assist our investigation.

"We are also keen to hear from anyone who saw any vehicles being driven in a suspicious manner in the area last night, in particular, a silver-coloured Ford Transit van.

If you can help, please call detectives on 101, and quote reference number 2470 of 24/06/20."
