Gardaí at Gorey Garda Station are investigating an Aggravated Burglary that occurred at Camolin, on Sunday 21 February 2021 at 8.30pm.

The victim and her two young daughters were in their living room, when they heard noises from outside the house, which the mother believed to be caused by the wind.

She was unaware that three unknown males were entering the house via a window at the back of the house.

A short time later two of the suspects entered the living room while the third stood at the door. One of the suspects that entered the living room was armed with a knife and the other with a crowbar. 

The suspect with the knife demanded money and jewellery which the victim handed over. The suspects’ demands continued and threats were made to kill the mother. While all of this was going on her two children were screaming and crying.

The suspects panicked and quickly left the premises in a silver or light green metallic Ford Mondeo partial registration number 08 –D.
