The woman was left shaken but uninjured after the incident, which took place in the Pound Street area of the town around 11pm yesterday (Thursday). A female with a knife forced her way into the property and demanded money. The woman took a sum of cash and left in the direction of Meetinghouse Street.
“This was a disgusting and vicious incident, made all the worse by the use of a weapon,” said Mr Dickson.
“My thoughts are with the woman who was subjected to this traumatic ordeal. People in Larne will be shocked by this burglary, which was incredibly disturbing.
“I would urge anyone who has any information on this incident to contact police immediately.”
