Couple attacked with hammer and knife at their home in Dublin
Gardai are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a couple were attacked with a knife and beaten with a hammer at their home in Dublin on Sunday night.
The man and women, both in their 40s, were the subject of the vicious attack when two men assaulted them at their house on the Swords Road in Whitehall at around 10.30pm.
They had just returned home and found the men waiting for them, suffering head injuries in the assault, but luckily prevented the men from gaining access to the inside of their home.
The attackers fled on foot and the couple were taken to the Mater Hospital to be treated for their wounds.
Gardai are investigating the incident and are appealing for witnesses to contact them on 1800 66611 (Garda Confidential Line) or at Santry Garda Station.
