URGENT: Gardai appeal over

Gardai are appealing for any information over what they describe as a "vicious" aggravated burglary that happened in Kingscourt yesterday.

At 6.20pm, February 11, a 58-year-old male returned to his home in Cornaman, Kingscourt, and was about to enter the house through the back door when he was set upon by four men.

He was beaten and brought inside where his wife (57) was also beaten and both were then tied up by the masked thugs who are believed to be carrying weapons.

They demand money and left stealing a black Landrover Freelander jeep with the registration number 07CN3857.

The woman freed herself and alerted gardai who arrived along with an ambulance shortly after.

The couple were taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda. The man suffered a punctured lung while she sustained a broken wrist.

Anyone with information or who has seen this vehicle is urged to get in touch as soon as possible with the incident room at Bailieborough Garda Station on (042) 969 4570 or the Garda confidential line on 1800 666 111.

Garda Superintendent Leo McGinn described the incident as a "very vicious attack" and said that gardai have deployed "major resources in the hunt for these attackers".
