A man in his 70s has been left ‘very badly shaken’ after being dragged down the stairs during an aggravated burglary in Holywood.

The incident happened at Downshire Road just before 11pm last night.

Two men, aged 32 and 25, have been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

Police said the victim had his wrists bound with cable ties. One of the men demanded money from him.

A neighbour was able to raise the alarm and the burglars then fled the scene.

Police are appealing for information.
