Gardaí are seeking three suspects in connection with an aggravated burglary which took place in Dublin 9 on Sunday December 5th.

At approximately 7.30pm a man returned to his home at Collinswood Estate with his children after a weekend away.

After entering the house alone he heard a noise upstairs and when he approached his bedroom he found a man standing in the ransacked room.

The householder was then approached by the man, who was holding a screwdriver and threatened to stab him.

The householder then left the house ordering the suspect to leave.

He went and stood by his car looking at the front door but nobody left.

He then heard his side gate opening and banging against the wall. The same man who had been upstairs in the house, exited and walked past the householder once again threatening him.

The suspect continued out the driveway and up the road. Another male then exited, limping and calling out to the first male who he called “Conor” and requested help as he suspected he had broken his leg.

The first suspect came back and helped the injured suspect.

The two males walked up the road, discarded the screwdriver and entered into a navy blue BMW X1. The injured man was helped into the car by another male, the driver of the BMW. The BMW then drove off out of Collinswood Estate, turning right in the direction of Whitehall.

1 gold man’s watch, a gold necklace, a silver bracelet and a silver and gold Citizen watch with name, date of birth and ‘mam and dad’ inscribed on the back were taken during the burglary.
