Two elderly brothers have been treated in hospital following a robbery at their Downpatrick home.

One received cuts to his face after four men, one brandishing a knife, entered their home on the Ballycreen Road and assaulted them at 2310 BST on Saturday.

One of the brothers was bound with cable ties during the incident.

Police said both men were left "extremely traumatised".

The police have asked for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.
