Gardai have issued an appeal for information following an aggravated burglary in Camolin, Co Wexford, in which this man (pictured) is one of the suspects. 

Officers at Gorey Garda Station want to speak to the man pictured.

The terrifying incident occurred on Sunday, February 21 at 8.30pm, when three men entered the house through a window at the back of the property.

A mother and her two young daughters were in their living room when they heard noises from outside the house.

The mother believed the noise was caused by the wind but a short time later two of the suspects entered the living room while the third stood at the door.

One of the men who 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 raiders then threated to kill the mother as 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,” gardai said.

Suspect one who was armed with the knife, is believed to be between 19 and 21 years of age, 5’9’’ in height with short brown hair, thin build, long face and wearing a green hoodie.

The second man who was armed with the crowbar is described as 5’9’’ in height, and wearing a dark grey hoodie and a black/green scarf.

The third suspect is a male in his late teens or early 20s, of slim build and approximately 5’9’’ in height.
