It happened in the Whitehall Gate area of the village at around 9.50pm on Sunday.

The man had just got home when one of the thieves grabbed him, put him on the floor and held him there while the second thief searched a number of rooms in the house.

The pair both made off with a sum of money.

Police described them as being of medium build and wearing black jeans, coats, gloves and balaclavas. Anyone who witnessed the incident has been asked to call the PSNI.
