Cllr Mervyn Jones stated: “This was a cowardly act carried out by thoughtless thugs.
“To target older people and rob their house is simply despicable. These thugs would have grandparents themselves, and I find it beyond belief that they could put two older people through such an ordeal.
“Local residents are understandably shocked at this incident. I would appeal to anyone who has information which may assist the police in their investigation to contact them immediately.”
