The occupant confronted the men, where they discharged an air weapon at him causing some injuries to his face. The offenders, described as all wearing dark clothing, are believed to have made off on foot.
Chief Inspector Phil Thompson said: “To be confronted by four masked men in the middle of the night is extremely frightening and has left the victim feeling understandably shaken up. It is completely unacceptable for someone’s property to be broken into and we want to do all we can to support the victim and find those responsible.
