Andreas Mathios, Blue Security media and community liaison officer, said four men armed with firearms, forced open the pedestrian gate of the property before breaking down the front door.

“Brandishing their firearms, the men pushed the resident onto the floor before ransacking her home, both upstairs and downstairs. After they left she was able to press the panic button to alert our control room at about 12.30pm.”

“Fortunately, the resident did not sustain any injuries during the incident,” he said.
