Newtownabbey pensioner shaken after robbery

A man in his 70s has been left badly shaken after being robbed by two men who called at his home in County Antrim.

It happened at about 19:00 BST on Friday, but the police have just released the details.

The pair called at a house at Hillview Park, Newtownabbey, and when the householder answered the door they said they knew him and entered.

They stole a sum of money from the house before leaving.

The police are appealing for information.
