Masked men robbed a young family in their Derry home stealing money and a car.

A couple and a young baby were at home when four masked men entered the property in the Sandale Park area on Thursday last.

Between 6.30pm and 6.45pm it was reported that the masked men entered a house and demanded money and the two family cars. The four masked men made off with a sum of money and a car. The car was later found burnt out in Donegal.
No one was injured during this burglary, however the occupants were left badly shaken.
