Detectives are investigating after the report of an aggravated burglary in the Creggan area of the city last night (Tuesday, 9 April). 

Detective Inspector Michael Winters said: “We received a report just after 10:40pm that a number of masked men armed with iron bars entered a property in Creggan Heights and assaulted a male occupant who sustained a facial injury.

"It was reported the masked intruders then fled on foot in the direction of Rinmore Drive.

"The victim, aged in his thirties, made his way to hospital for treatment. 

"Two women and a second male in the house at the time of the incident were not injured, however, this must have been a frightening ordeal for the victim and the occupants of the house."
