Robbers attempt to 'tie up baby'

Thieves tried to tie up a one-year-old baby during a robbery in County Armagh, police have said.
Three masked men entered a house at Sheetrim Road, Middletown, at about 2000 BST on Saturday.
They tied up a woman and her seven-year-old son with masking tape, and then tried to restrain the woman's baby. None of the family was injured.
Lilya Mallon, who is from Ukraine, said she was worried for her children's safety.


SDLP councillor Gerald Mallon said the community had been shocked at the robbery.
"We are all left wondering what type of people would hurt and terrify a baby like this, as well as a seven-year-old boy and their mother," he said.
"Those responsible are clearly dangerous and have no respect for human life whatsoever."

... or are they just thick?
