Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I am appalled that this family were tied up in their own home. People should be able to live in their home without the fear of this type of incident taking place.
“It is shocking that there are people who would carry out such a crime. I hope that this man and teenager will be able to get over what must have been a highly traumatic experience.
“Those responsible are very dangerous individuals who must be brought to justice in the courts, so I would urge anybody with any information about this burglary to contact the Police.”
