Police investigating Barrackpore home invasion

Police are investigating a report of a home invasion and robbery in Barrackpore. 

The incident took place at about 5.10 am at a home along Gilbert Trace. 

Police were told that a woman and her son were at home when they heard a loud noise. 

Three men, armed with knives and what appeared to be firearms, forced their way into the home and announced a hold-up. They tied up the two victims and ransacked the home searching for valuable items. 

The assailants eventually secured a quantity of cash, jewellery and electronic items before they escaped. 

The victims were able to untie themselves and raised an alarm. 

Investigations are ongoing.
