Naomi Long said: “This was a despicable robbery and I am saddened that someone in the house at the time was injured and was taken to hospital. I want to wish them a swift recovery.

“This would have been a terrifying ordeal and I cannot understand the mindset of someone who would stoop so low as to do this.
